Negotiations Between Tanguay And Calgary Not Progressing

from Steve MacFarlane of the Calgary Sun,

Negotiations are ongoing, but there apparently are large differences in opinions when it comes to terms between the club and the player who posted 69 points in his return to the Flames last season.

“It’s money,” Feaster said Monday in a prelude to a hectic week that will involve discussions with and about his own pending restricted and unrestricted free agents, interviews for a head coach for the farm team, the expected hiring of an assistant GM and, of course, the weekend’s draft proceedings in St. Paul, Minn.

But the rest of the tasks at hand take a brief backseat when the name Tanguay is mentioned in a scrum with reporters.

They all chuckled at the moment of honesty from Feaster when addressing the disagreement with the left-winger who will no doubt earn a massive raise over the US$1.7 million he earned with the Flames last season after returning to form following a tough campaign with the Tampa Bay Lightning the previous campaign.

But the Flames don’t seem willing to cave on demands that may be too high for a team desperate to shed salary.
