Ryan Callahan, Dan Girardi, Yankee Stadium

Buzz: The latest on Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi including what is being offered (Updates)

1:32PM: The Rangers and Callahan’s agent have spoken in the past day and there is nothing new to report with it. (Pat Leonard)

2/27/14: 8:08AM: “You don’t think Ryan Callahan is sick and tired of talking about being a primary trade target and the fact he has been vilified for asking for nearly $7 million per year. Dan Girardi hasn’t agreed to a contract yet though most still believe that he will to stay with the Rangers.” (Darren Dreger on Leafs Breakfast)

2/26/14: 9:24PM: Boomer Esiason just tweeted “Sami Vatanen.” Vatanen has been a player linked to the Rangers for Girardi. 

8:02PM: The Rangers are committed to sending Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi out of town if they are not signed by the March 5 deadline. (NY Post)

On Dan Girardi, the Rangers are closing in on what he has asked for, six-years and $5.5 million per season, but Girardi has indicated that he isn’t ready or willing to sign at those terms. Girardi would be considered the “prize rental” of the season. (NY Post)

On Ryan Callahan, the Rangers captain is searching for a seven-year deal worth between $45 million and $50 million. There is “widespread belief” that the Sabres will pay Callahan what he wants if he becomes a free agent. (NY Post)

The Rangers have offered him five-years and $30 million and are concerned about contract length. The Rangers are looking for one NHL player and one prospect or high draft pick in exchange for Callahan. (NY Post)

Larry Brooks wonders if Callahan and Girardi will go to UFA together and sign with the same time. He says that their wives are close friends, they are close friends, and they first played together in the OHL. (NY Post)

Adam Rotter: I think that the Rangers will end up waiting until the last possible second before trading Girardi. I think that Callahan ends up being moved before the deadline while Girardi’s situation may not be resolved until the day of. The two are very close and Girardi may be waiting to see what happens with Callahan or the two of them may pull a Parise and Suter and go to market together and sign with new teams. Everyone talks about Callahan and the Sabres but Girardi’s home town in Ontario is just as close to Buffalo

Pay them both the money....  Callahan is the heart and soul of this team....  i like a 5 year deal over a 7 year deal but 7 years at 7 million, i know that sounds like a lot today but 5 years from now its not going to sound like much....    If you lose Callahan it will be like taking the air out of a tire....
