What's up with Nicklas Grossman?

Seems the Stars are seriously short on cash due to the ownership situation and both Neal and Grossman are still unsigned. How much is he looking for? He was a top pairing defender for them last year and at 25 yo would be quite attractive to many teams i'm sure if the Stars can't afford him.

The Stars are not losing their RFAs, they would trade more expensive pieces (i.e. Ribeiro, Daley) first. The only one that is even a threat to receive an offersheet is Neal, and short of something ridiculous the Stars would match it. I would expect Grossman to be the next Dallas RFA signed, he was arbitration eligible and didn't file for it so they aren't that far away from each other on terms.
Stars assistant GM Frank Provenzano and Meehan [Grossman's agent] have been talking quite a bit about Grossman, but they had to take a break this week while the Stars prepared for the Fabian Brunnstrom arbitration case (which will be heard today in Toronto). Meehan said he fully expects to get back into talks next week.

I believe the Stars are shooting for about $2 million a year on Grossman.
