from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
We sought out Bryon Baltimore, the elusive agent of Jay Bouwmeester, who, like his client, keeps a low profile and stays out of the media spotlight. But he was kind enough to chat with ESPN.com before rushing off to the airport and heading back to Edmonton.
“I can’t say that it’s that interesting a week in the sense that Jay’s focus in on the playoff run and helping the Panthers get there,” said Baltimore. “That’s been his focus all year.”
The Panthers have been unable to get Bouwmeester, a pending unrestricted free agent July 1, to agree to a contract extension and that’s why they are contemplating moving him next week if the deal is right.
“We’ve had ongoing dialogue and whatnot,” Baltimore said of contract talks with the Panthers. “I’ve always treated the business end of it and the negotiating end of it as confidential, so I can’t say that we have not spoken, but I have to leave it at that.”
