Stralman said "the only thing in my mind is security for me and my family. We have been moving a lot and doing 4 teams in 7 years and all we are looking for is stability and staying in one place and this is where we would like to stay. I hope it will happen. We will see." (Rangers)

Adam Rotter: Stralman has a young family and I think his comfort of being in New York and being here for three years now helps the Rangers potentially re-sign him. It ultimately comes down to how much the Rangers can offer vs how much he is likely to get on the open market. Stralman has gone from being a depth player, defensive liability and someone who was almost out of the league to being a real top four defender and someone who has earned every right to get the best deal for him and his family. The Rangers would miss Stralman if he leaves but this is his one chance at a big contract and I believe there will be more money and maybe more years from other teams than what the Rangers can ultimately offer.
