Sportsnet: Klingberg on the commerce request rumors:
“I don’t suppose it’s totally true. It’s not like I’ve been going on the market and asking ‘I wish to get traded now,’ or one thing like that,” Klingberg told reporters on Saturday. “It’s one thing that’s been occurring with the negotiations and stuff like that. I’m not going to lie, it’s been a couple of irritating years individually.
“…Different guys have signed proper earlier than the season earlier than. I needed to try this as effectively. Recently, it has been going extra quietly and quietly. For me, as a participant, I don’t really feel that I’ve been appreciated in that manner once we don’t even negotiate. It’s quiet. For me, as a participant, my agent, we talked to Jim (Nill) a pair months again. He agreed that we might begin speaking with different GMs and see the place we had been at. Negotiation-wise, the Stars have been very quiet.”

“They sport me a proposal manner again they usually haven’t actually moved in any respect. On my facet, on my agent’s facet, I really feel like we’ve been making an attempt to maneuver items, years, numbers and stuff like that. On our half, I really feel like we’ve been making an attempt to fulfill them in several methods. Increasingly more, because it comes all the way down to, it’s been extra quiet. I don’t know actually the place they’re at, in the event that they intend to signal me. I do know that they wish to signal me and I perceive that there’s loads of items which have to enter place and it’s a cap world and all that, as effectively. However they must decide in the event that they see me as a future Dallas Star or what’s occurring right here.
