According to an interview that Mats Zuccarello gave earlier this week in Norway, Mats Zuccarello says that there has been interest from other teams about him but that he is only focusing on being a Ranger.
Zuccarello said that he isn’t stressing over the situation and gets asked all the time if he will return to the Rangers or play somewhere else.
Zuccarello told TV2 in Norway that the two sides aren’t far apart in negotiations and denied that he was searching for $2 million per year as was reported. Zuccarello said that his demands are not unreasonable.
He said that he hopes to avoid arbitration but that even if he goes through the process he isn’t worried about a strained relationship afterward.
Zuccarello said that he hopes a deal can be done in the next week or two.
In his interview with TV2, he says that his agents in North America have recieved inquiries about his status but that he only wants to focus on being a Ranger now.
