Sign him for 2 years at say 2.5 per, and when hes a RFA again we wont have Drury or Rozsival on the books, and you can giv ehim a 10 year 55 million dollar contract.
The Rangers defense without Staal is his leverage...What does it look like without him? Not every RFA situation is the same and when people start to realize this the better they will be. If the Rangers have Staal hold out until December they will have one of the worst defense corps in the league....right? I mean you guys who say "don't give him what he wants" are really saying "don't give him anything fair because then Kovy can't sign here!"

You sign Staal to a 6 or 7 year contract to buy out his arbitration years, and part of his UFA years. THAT should be the stragegy, not THIS.
