from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,
The Wild continues to wait patiently for free-agent winger Alex Tanguay to make a decision on his future.
While sources say the Wild hasn’t budged on a one-year, $2.5 million offer—the max it can legitimately offer the playmaker and still be comfortably under the $56.8 million salary cap ceiling—the Wild has continued to talk to both Tanguay and his agent….
The biggest obstacle for the Wild is Tampa Bay. If Tanguay signs with the Lightning, he has been told he would play alongside star center Vincent Lecavalier, which could be too good an opportunity to pass up.
The Lightning offered Tanguay a one-year, $2 million deal, sources said. But since the Lightning has more salary-cap room than Minnesota, Tanguay’s stall tactics could be a way of trying to get the Lightning to come up in price as training camp approaches.
added 9:50pm, TSN is just confirming the RDS report.
