Now I can tell about my source about this..it's one of his "agents", not for contracts but Close.

Still saying that in feb/mar they could have signed Strals for a bit under 4 mill if they wanted to for 4 years...terms and no move clause (stabliity). He never got a real offer...

Ok, maybe the lousy PP will get better... but honestly (i e hard reality) the D and Hank (ok, the AV transition has been great) has been the core for the last years of progress. So...a great D core signed for a couple of years (Staal is still a ?) along with a C and F core which is still in progress or at least at a chance of a potential revival .. I Believe the NYR made a mistake this year.
That's really frustrating to hear. Sather must have really been down on the guy.
