You could say contract negotiations between the New York Rangers and RFA Michael Del Zotto have been a little dicey.
“He’ll come to his senses,” Sather said. “We’ve been down this road before with guys that just have come out of their entry-level contracts. We’ve offered him a fair contract. We just have to see if it changes in the new CBA.”
You can understand why Del Zotto might be eager to get a deal done. As for his demands, the Rangers have offered him a deal in the range of $2.2-2.5 million per year and turned it down. If he wants a deal done before the CBA expires, he’s got until Saturday to do it.
