Pierre LeBrun of TSN and ESPN.com reports that the proposed deal was believed to be for $60 million. Staal, who turns 24 in September, has one year remaining on his current contract before becoming an unrestricted free agent.

Staal's agent, Paul Krepelka, told LeBrun: "[Staal] is not prepared to enter into a contract extension at this time." Whether this is posturing for more dollars or a sign of greater discontent remains to be seen, but there is already speculation that Staal, who has 120 goals and 248 points in 431 career games, may want to join his brother Eric with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Nick Cotsonika of Yahoo! Sports tweets:

One NHL general manager told LeBrun: "Let’s be honest, Carolina has the hammer."
