from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
“Right now, asking me if he’s going to be in training camp, the only answer I can give is I’m not sure. But we’ve still got a lot of time and we’re fully focused on trying to get a deal done,” said Meszaros’ agent, Gerry Johansson.
“Our No. 1 priority is to get a deal done with the Senators. That’s where Andrej wants to be. I’d say at this point, we’re optimistic that we’ll be able to get a deal done, but I can’t tell you that we’re close. We’ve still got work to do to make this happen.”
Summer-long talks between Meszaros’ camp and Senators GM Bryan Murray to get a deal done have been fruitless despite hours of discussions.
It’s believed the Senators have offered a contract in the range of $3.5 million (all terms US) a season on a long-term deal, but Meszaros is likely looking at something closer to the $4.5 million per year that Shea Weber received on a three-year deal with the Predators this summer.
