Why would you think not talking means not willing to get them signed? It means nothing at this point. Sather believes ( and, I think, rightfully so) he can match any other team money wise. This is not veteran market anyway. Every team is looking for young players that could be had for long time. DiPietro contract is no longer seems crazy as inflationary process takes over. The bridge contracts that NYR is willing to pay its veterans is not something to walk away from for Shanny, Straka and even Jagr. Sather wants them to realize that comes July 1st.
