TSN says Melnyk met with J.P. Barry and Stacey McAlpline for 5 hours today and they came out with "we will take some time over the next week to consider each other's position".
I would hope that Dany was there too. If Eugene comes to talk, instead of Murray, shouldn't the player be there?
Dreger in the article says that Melnyk was talking 7 while they were talking 8.5. Can I make some coin out of this by purposing 7.75?
Thornton's 3 yr extension at 7.2 is a good comparison. So, if you want to go a 5 year deal you've got to up the per year value, right? Heatley is 2 yrs younger than Thornton for those that care.
What would this do the Sens payroll situation?
