He stayed with the Rangers thru the last game at MSG. I'm sure Sather wouldn't keep him with team if their wasn't any interest. Same goes for Umberger.
Gut feeling -- Sather wants to wait until June 1st when he picks up the 16th pick in the second round. Sather has probally told RJ and his agent Brian Lawton, they will match any offer to him and (wink,wink) the extra pick will help the team so RJ wait and you will be rewarded.
Remember RJ wants the rookie cap, he can't be paid more than that. If Sather wants him it is because he will play in the NHL next season, he knows he will get to play with the Rangers and he won't get sent down, like the Pens did to Flury, so he didn't get any bonuses and gets an extra year of low ball $$$.
