Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that the Rangers have offered Marc Staal a contract in the range of four years for $14 million.
His agent, Bobby Orr, is seeking substantially more.
...lots of debate on the blog yesterday on how much Staal is worth. I think this is a fair first offer from the Rangers. Not sure that Staal is worth substantially more but I wouldn't be against the final number being four years for $15-15.5 million.
Brooks also reports that the Rangers may be exploring other options than re-signing the popular Jody Shelley who is said to be seeking $1.5 million per.
...$1.5 million is a bit much for Shelley but this looks like Orr all over again. A popular enforcer that makes the team better for some reason not wanted by the Rangers. You think Sather would have learned from the Brashear mistake.
