Here's the actual bit from Stop Coaching Pat:
Stralman, meanwhile, told the Daily News earlier this week that there may be a chance his agent and the Rangers begin talking extension during the Olympic break; however, he insisted that since the beginning of the season he would have considered any in-season contract talks a "bonus," and so he will not expect anything to happen until it does.
Seems like the SNY Blog tried to make it seem like the Rangers were possibly initiating discussions, but in reality it was more just Stralman speculating that it could happen, but that he wasn't expecting it.
Frankly, despite how well he's played, I think the Rangers plan to sign Girardi and will let Stralman walk as a FA. They need an offensive defender and they can't afford to have 3 RHD locked up on extended contracts which will potentially block Allen and McIlrath from pushing for spots.
