Edmonton Close With Pisani

from the Edmonton Sun,
The Oilers and winger Fernando Pisani are moving along nicely in their contract talks - so well in fact that Pisani's agent Mark Witkin thinks they could have a deal in place before July 1. It's been widely assumed that Pisani, an Edmonton boy, wouldn't ever leave Edmonton, but after a playoff like his the Oilers definitely don't want to take any chances. "He certainly will be wanted by a number of teams (if he becomes unrestricted July 1),'' said Witkin, whose client gets a big bump from $611,000 he made last year. "But we might very well have a deal done before that ever happens. We've set the table, now we have to see if there's a meal that could possibly be cooked.''
