There is no problem, per say. It's all about leverage and discussions. Sather might have no problem paying that figure but Staal or Staal's agent might not want that. The years each side want might be mixed up. Etc. I wouldn't think that there's any problem at all, just a waiting game. The Rangers have a ton of leverage in the situation; If I was Sather I'd be going the same thing.
