Teams Will Work To Keep Their Own

from the Edmonton Journal,

“If the Ducks called today to negotiate an extension for Ryan Getzlaf, we would definitely return that phone call. When you see (fellow Group II players) Zach Parise just sign an extension a year before his contract is up and Sidney Crosby in Pittsburgh do the same, I see teams trying to take care of their restricted players earlier. I see that happening more (than offer sheets),” said Johannson.
“Most players want to sign with their current team, but in the old days, the team had leverage over a Group II restricted free agent. The variable now is the offer sheet, and I see teams revising their ideas about what’s fair to keep their own players.”
