From Jesse Rogers at ESPNChicago.com:
While no negotiations have taken place, Keith’s agent, Ross Gurney, is expected in town soon which means those talks could heat up. Keith will get a considerable raise from the $1.5 million he is making now.
Too bad for Duncan he wasn’t born a month earlier; if so, he’d be an unrestricted free-agent at the end of this year instead of next. He’ll be 27 on July 16, 2010 which is the age NHL players become unrestricted but he would need to be 27 by July 1.
This gives him a little leverage, I suppose. If he doesn’t like any long term deals the Hawks have to offer (and doesn’t sign a restricted deal with another team) he could play next year under a “qualifying offer” and then become unrestricted.
