More than two weeks after the start of the period to negotiate with their players slated to become unrestricted free agents on July 1, the B’s have had no substantial contact with top winger Sergei Samsonov. "I talked to Mike (O’Connell) briefly after New Year’s, just touching base, but (had) no discussion of a contract and no indication one way or another what’s going to happen," said Neil Abbott, the agent for the 27-year-old Russian. "Our doors are open. If they want to talk, we’ll talk. But we’re not asking. I think there are other things on his mind right now besides doing deals. The indications were that he’s going to get back to me. We’ll talk at some point, I think. But there’s been no request or proposals back and forth."
