I know about RBs thought of locking up MDZ for a longer contract at around $3,8 M - something like Karlsson. At least IMO. And it very well may come to fruition. But that is Staal money and I do not believe Sather is going to pay that money to MDZ. Not now. And MDZ < Karlsson so far in the NHL. Sather always hardballs his RFAs without arbitration rights. We will see very shortly where this winds up... No?
