Carl Hagelin's agent Claes Elefalk recently told Mattias Ek at Expressen that talks with the Rangers on a new contract are going well... "It looks good, they really want him, so it's a blast." Elefalk feels that once they formally begin to negotiate, a new deal should be reached in a week. Hagelin, a RFA, just completed his two-year entry level contract that paid him $875K per year. ...three years, $1.5 million per. Get it done Slats! ...Hagelin was much improved offensively in his sophomore season with the Rangers, but he's still nothing more than a third line player right now and the Rangers shouldn't pay him more than one. If Hagelin can continue to progress the next few years then his first opportunity as a UFA should pay-off handsomely for the speedy Swede. Hagelin's agent added that his client's shoulder surgery has gone according to plan and will need four to five months of rehab. ...i really don't think the shoulder surgery will have any affect on the contract negotiations as Hagelin is expected to have a full recovery. ...i wouldn't be surprised, however, if he had a slow start to the season after not being able to properly train during the offseason and most likely missing much if not all of camp.
