The next night, the Coyotes hung seven on the Oilers. As...

What to do with Marc Staal

When we last checked in on Marc Staal, he was rumored to be looking for a Dan Girardi contract, roughly $5.5 million over six years. The cost isn’t that big of a deal with a rising cap, and the term is fine by me since Staal is just 28 years old (34 when that contract would […] The post What to do with Marc Staal appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

The Rangers contract negotiations with Staal won’t end well

According to Larry Brooks, the Rangers are believed to have offered Marc Staal the same six year, $5.5 million contract they signed Dan Girardi to last season. “Offered” is bold and italicized because it is inconceivable to me that the Rangers brass could be so wrong in their talent evaluation of Staal. Staal is actually seeking over continue reading...

Staal Reportedly Seeking 7-Year, $6M Per Extension

Here we go again. Last season, Rangers fans had to endure torturous reports of ridiculous contract demands from some of their top players including Henrik Lundqvist, Dan Girardi and Ryan Callahan. Whelp, according to Larry Brooks at the New York Post, Marc Staal is joining the list. Brooks noted last night that Staal is reportedly seeking a six or seven year contract at $6 million...

Where Rangers and Marc Staal stand in contract talks

Look, there’s dialogue between Rangers management and Marc Staal’s representation that is constructive. And talks will continue. That’s all good. But even as No. 18’s agent, Paul Krepelka, told The Post on Wednesday afternoon that “we’ve made some progress,” an agreement on a contract extension for the alternate captain is by no means imminent. There remains a substantial...

However, contract extension talks have been “productive” according to his agent, Paul Krepelka.

What to do with Marc Staal

With franchise net minder Henrik Lundqvist, heart-and-soul captain Ryan Callahan and top-pair, RH defender Dan Girardi all scheduled for unrestricted free agency after the 2013 – 2014 regular season and limited cap space to re-sign those players, Glen Sather had some very difficult decisions to make.

Top Six Candidates To Become The Rangers 27th Captain

Now that the Rangers roster is rounding into shape, the next biggest question is who’s going to lead this team? After trading away Ryan Callahan last March, the Rangers decided to go with three alternate captains instead of naming a new captain for the remainder of the season. During the Rangers run to the Stanley Cup Final, Brad Richards took on the role of de facto captain, but...

Report card: Defense

Dan Girardi - What a roller coaster year Girardi just completed. He looked totally lost at the beginning of the season (like several Blueshirts), but quickly turned around his game and played like his old self during the second-half. Management was convinced that Girardi’s early-season hiccups were an anomaly and rewarded him with a six-year, $33 million contract, essentially […]

Rangers need Richards and Girardi to not play terrible in game five

It’s no secret, Brad Richards has been terrible in the Stanley Cup Final. His fall from adored de facto captain back to the dejected scapegoat that he was in last year’s playoffs under John Tortorella has been a hockey horror show. It’s been a remarkable train wreck that I can’t stop talking about. Partly because it’s incredible how quickly the tide turned against Richards...

What The Hell Is Going On With Dan Girardi?

The Stanley Cup Playoffs can do unbelievable things to players’ reputations. The sample sizes are small and the stakes are as high as they’ll ever get. Sprinkle in the fact that games, especially in the Conference Finals and Stanley Cup Final, are being watched by the entire hockey world and thus under the magnifying glass, and it’s a recipe for defining moments and players...
