No progress made in Callahan, Girardi talks
TheFourthPeriod.com

The New York Rangers weren't able to make any progress in contract negotiations with captain Ryan Callahan and defenseman Dan Girardi over the Olympic break.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, who tweeted the news on Sunday, term is still an issue for both players.

Callahan is looking for a seven-year contract worth between $6 million and $7 million per season, while Girardi is looking for a deal in the five-to-seven year range.

If the Rangers are unable to sign either player by the March 5 trade deadline, they are expected to trade them.

The Olympic trade freeze lifts tonight at midnight, but the Rangers aren't expected to make a move involving Callahan or Girardi just yet.

"(The Rangers) don't have anything imminent in terms of trade for either guy. Expect it all to play out over 7 to 10 days," McKenzie tweeted.

The Anaheim Ducks, Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings are among the teams interested in Girardi, who is looking for a deal worth more than $5 million, per year, on his next contract.

Callahan has caught the attention of the St. Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks, among others.
