New York offered Staal five year term just shy of 20M. Del Zetto only received two years at $5.1M per.

There is no unilateral bargaining position for every players. Different players have more or less power depending on their abilities. If Gallagher only puts up 15g and 35 points during his contract year. He is in no position demand for term. Double those statistics and Montreal is moronic not to give him what he wants.
