Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants says this about the contract negotiations between the Rangers and Marc Staal...
"From what I gathered yesterday, the sides are still far apart. This is also not a negotiation that will be playing out in public so, one day, Marc Staal will be signed. As I mentioned in my last blog post, John Tortorella is not looking to have Staal in training camp if the restricted free agent defenseman is not signed but Tortorella is “optimistic” a deal will be reached."
...how far apart can the sides be. I hope Staal doesn't think he's a $5 million a year player. Because he's not. And the Rangers better not be offering the same amount as Girardi as he is worth more. $4.5 million for four years. Lock it up.
