No Movement In The Marc Staal Contract Talks

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

There has been no progress whatsoever in the contract extension talks between the Rangers and Marc Staal, The Post has learned from several informed sources.

And that essentially is because there have been no meaningful talks for weeks between management and the 27-year-old defenseman’s camp.

The Rangers are believed to be offering Staal, who can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, the same six-year, $33 million deal ($5.5M per) to which they signed Dan Girardi last year when he was a pending free agent. They don’t appear inclined to move off that number.

Staal, two years younger than Girardi, is believed seeking at least $6 million per on a six- or seven-year deal, which he certainly would be able to get on the open market if he remains healthy throughout the season.
