from Bryan Mullen of the Tennessean,
Hamhuis, 27, made $2.5 million in 2009-10 and soon could become an unrestricted free agent. His contract is set to expire June 30, and several teams are expected to show interest and offer more money if Nashville doesn’t sign him before the deadline.
“I think it’s going to be very difficult,” Poile said. “But I’d like to continue having conversations this week and possibly reach out to Dan next week before we take our final position.”
Hamhuis’ agent, Wade Arnott, said discussions have been positive and ongoing.
“The club had always advised Dan and myself that they would address his situation at season’s end, after they had a chance to meet as a group in management and with ownership,” Arnott said. “I believe they’ve met among management and have some ongoing meetings with ownership. I expect to have more positive dialogue leading up to July 1, if it gets that far.”
Should Hamhuis, who just completed his sixth season with Nashville, leave town, there will be more tough calls to make.
