[Rumour] Eric Staal talking to 3-4 teams, could sign after US Thanksgiving week, league minimum $

Eric Staal continues to skate every day at his home in Minnesota with the hope the phone will soon ring for his services.

 

The UFA center hasn’t given up hope yet on returning for another NHL season. His agent, Rick Curran, has been in regular dialogue with 3-4 teams and I think the sense is that around U.S. Thanksgiving those teams might decide whether or not they need to bring in a guy like Staal, who would come in cheap on a minimum contract.

 

I find it hard to believe Staal can’t help a team still.

Lets see... veteran probably wants a chance to win or a place he is comfortable in like close to home.  We would really fit neither.

Well he's already won the cup so maybe giving him some more money might convince him to join the Canucks

There has to be room on the roster for Eric considering all the smurfs we have hang'n 'roun'.

He doesn’t want to play in Canada.

 

And considering he’s signing for league minimum he’ll sign with a contender not the tire fire currently going on here.

With all the money he's made he has chosen Minnesota as his home? 

Lots of players in multiple sports have chosen to retire in Minnesota after their playing days. I've never been so I can't attest to it, but apparently its a nice place to live.

I've been but was long ago and didn't see enough to really judge. I am sure it is nice enough. Especially if people are into outdoorsy things like hunting/fishing etc.  That said....there are way way way way way nicer places. Especially if you have money.
