NHL Rumors IV: Callahan, Stastny, Ducks and Subban

  • Pierre LeBrun: Not finalized yet, but Ryan Callahan’s contract extension with the Lightning will be for six years and $34.8 million, a $5.8 million salary cap hit.
  • Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: Avs Joe Sakic said late last night that Paul Stasnty wants to “see what’s out there.” Stastny’s camp promised to circle back and give the Avs the right of first refusal. Dater speculates the Avs have offered Stastny a deal somewhere between $5 and $6 million.
  • Pierre LeBrun: Paul Stastny’s camp has already received a bunch of calls regarding the pending free agent. The Avs will still be in the mix.
  • Eric Stephens of the OC Register: Ducks GM Bob Murray wants to address their center position and defense as he feels he’s behind I that area compared to other top contenders. He’s armed with two first picks, two seconds and their 2015 first rounder.

    “That’s in the back of my mind all the time,” Murray said. “Where is that guy, can you find that guy, and can you afford that guy? … Is the time now, or do we have to step back and wait to see how these kids develop?

    “It’s a little bit of a game right now in terms of where you really are.”

    Realistic options include: Ryan Kesler and Jason Spezza.

    Good but unrealistic options: Paul Stastny, Eric Staal and Joe Thornton.

  • Brian Wilde: Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin knows that he underpaid P.K. Subban before and that he’ll have to pay up now. Could get eight years and $9 million per season.

    Subban is a good D men but 9 millions per season for a player there not in the top ten for the Norris this years. Yes , he win the the years before He don’t have prove is constancy to get that much money, I think maybe in the range of 7 millions. If a team offer 9 million to this RFA , better to take the 4 first round pick and have space for other player

    Subban is so overrated it’s not even funny anymore. 9m a season goes to players like Toews or Kopitar. Players that are winning multiple times at all levels. Subban has won a what? First and second round of post season ONCE? Ok that’s team success.So what ONE Norris in a shortened season even though Chara or Weber or Letang Keith Doughty or any of the the other 10 better Dman in the league got nothing.i do like his class act off the ice but that’s where it ends.

    either give him long term with less money or if you’re gonna give him that much cash make it a three year deal. so much money and term is going to be his ruin. he will get lazy and be too happy and cushy with his pay that he wont care about hockey anymore. if its a three year deal he cant slack off and expect to keep getting paid. can’t have your cake and eat it too pernell.

    Great signing by SY in tampa. That contract gives Tampa room to sign RFA’s, draft picks, and Steven Stamkos in the comming years. Hopefully Cally can stay heathy and have a productive career for tampa. Hope montreal can talk some sense P.K. he’s definitly not worth that type of money. If he does some how find a way to sign 8.5 million plus it will kill cap space for many of the new up coming players in montreal.
