I think it's less special than regular grease. Otherwise, who would give it up for that hold out bum Dubinksy?

I think the Rangers will give him $4.5-4.85MM per year for 5 or 6 years, throw in the benefits he'll have as a player and a resident of NYC, and reasonable proximity to his family Upstate, and I can't imagine the possibility of an extra million or two over 5/6 years is going to make him leave.
That's all nice and everything but the allmighty dollar rules 90% of the time. Also, last I looked Chicago, Detroit, Boston are also original 6 teams which he would thrive in those cities.

Doesn't that make you feel as if he doesn't want to be a Ranger?
There's no doubt in my mind that Callahan wants a long term deal, that he wants to remain a Ranger. If he goes to arbitration, it won't be because he doesn't want to be here long term. It will be because they just couldn't work out the details of a long term agreement. In that case, I would expect him to sign an extension some time after January 1st.

Not saying you're wrong, but I don't understand how you have all of May, June, and July to work out a long-term deal and you can't get one done...

If he does not sign a long term deal now and goes to Arbitration, there is no incentive for him to have contract talks until next July 1st, unless he gets from the Rangers what he expects to get on the open market which will be over 5 Million a year.

Top 15-20 'all-around' forwards.

I'm not really a fan of arbitrary labels such as 'top-10', and whatnot, but Callahan is certainly among the best when talking about his overall package.

Incentive is that the CBA would be expiring, and no one knows how much money the players will be giving up in the next deal.

I keep hearing "it's all about the money" every time a player needs to be resigned, but how many of them have we lost because we couldn't come to terms on a deal?

It's funny, because last time I checked, Callahan has never played for any other original six team, and doesn't currently live in any of those cities. Nor is he all but guaranteed to be a captain on those teams. So.. how is that countering my point?

You don't think he would live in those cities if the money was right!!!!And don't overrate the captain thing either. The only risk Cally has by not agreeing to a long term deal now is by suffering a major injury.

Probably because they don't talk every day, particularly in the beginning. It seems they don't even get serious about it until it gets close to crunch time in many cases. Look at the NFL. They could have been negotiating for the last year, but waited until the lockout to really get things in motion.

Basically, unless both sides agree on the first offer, they are both going to wait as long as they can to get the best deal they can.

Pretty much what GAG said.

These types of deals rarely ever get done until they have to be. It's just the way it is. There's no pressure before that point to get it done and there's other things that both sides are dealing with that push it to the back burner.

I still believe Cally will get done tomorrow.

I think it will be the exact same thing that happened to Dubi. We'll head into tomorrow thinking that we're going to arbitration, then we'll find out around 10:30 or 11 that they pushed it back a bit and came to terms in the morning.

If it does go to arbitration I still believe that he will be a Ranger beyond next season. I just can't fathom anything else. Unless he's just asking for ridiculous money and he's sure he'll get it on the open market.

Sure, he could hope that one of those 5 teams gives him $5MM+ on the open market, or he could take a guaranteed contract now and not have to pick up and move to a new city. Sure, he might be forfeiting 3 or 4 hundred thousand a year, but that's worth it to MANY people. I mean, that's what, a 5% difference if he gets $4.5MM per year?

If it was all about the money, why do players bother re-signing with teams at all? By your assessment, the FA market should be teeming with prime talent every summer.

Just spoke to Ryan Callahan's agent, Steve Bartlett, who said, "Getting close, but nothing 100% yet."

3 years would actually be ok in my book. Gaborik comes off the books that year, and you never know if Cally's body will hold up taking into account his style of play.

I was hoping long term, but this may be a blessing in disguise for all of us who wanted to sign him for 5+ years.

Yeah, not bad. Sure we'd love a real long term deal but it works with the Rangers cap situation and if he earns it, they'll give him the money he deserves at the end of 3 years

Confirmed that Ryan Callahan deal is now done, as #NYR avoids arbitration with last restricted free agent.


EDIT: Kyper says 3 years, 13 million

I posted before that I expected Callahan to sign a shorter contract than Dubinsky. We all love him, but there is a question of how his body will hold up.

Three years is not bad at all.

Im thrilled that hes resigned, but 3 year deal seems a bit strange.

Want to know the $$ involved.
