Stars give D Daley 6-year, $19.8M extension
Question of the Day
Daley’s new contract is worth $3.5 million in each of the first four years before dropping to $3.1 million in 2015-16 and $2.7 million on 2016-17.
“The lenders, for sure, and with the league’s blessing, they like what we’re doing, they like what they see here with us, and gave us the green light to go ahead and negotiate,” Nieuwendyk said. “We ask, can we do this? And we get blessings, so we do this. I think this is a good deal for us.”
As part of the new contract, the 27-year-old Daley received a no-trade clause for the first two seasons, with limited trade options in the final four years.
“His game is suited for where the league is going, with puck-moving, mobile defensemen,” Nieuwendyk said. “He’s probably our best one at doing a lot of those things. So it’s an important piece for us.”
The team has five more potential unrestricted free agents, including top-line center Brad Richards.
“I’ve said all along that I want to sign Brad Richards and we’re going to do what we can to make that happen,” Nieuwendyk said. “I’m sure it will be a difficult (negotiation). Brad Richards is in position to be the No. 1 free agent in July. That’s not a secret. But he enjoys playing here and we want him to be part of our core.”
