The Anaheim Ducks Still Trying To Sign Matt Belesky

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

The hottest goal scorer on the NHL’s unrestricted free agent market will likely be wearing a new sweater next season.

The Anaheim Ducks have made one last offer to winger Matt Beleskey prior to July 1, according to general manager Bob Murray, but the team appears ready to cut ties if the breakout sniper doesn’t drop his asking price.

“It’s a bumpy road right now. I’m not going to lie. We’re going to take one more shot at it, and then we’ll have to move on,” Murray told Hockey Central at Noon Monday.

“You gotta protect yourself. It’s not just the contract this year; it’s what it does to your team in future years. You’ve gotta be looking one, three, five, seven years out. You gotta see what that contract does to you, the term of it. There’s lots of things that go into this that people don’t see right off the bat.”
