from Sonny Sachdeva of Sportsnet,
On Sunday, Panarin’s agent, Daniel Milstein, provided an update on his client’s position in a lengthy interview with The Athletic’s Aaron Portzline, confirming that the winger informed the Blue Jackets before the 2018 draft of his indecision regarding an extension with the club.
It appears the central issues for the former Chicago Blackhawk are the term of a potential deal and simply the franchise’s location, as Panarin hasn’t yet decided whether he wants to spend much of the next decade in Columbus, according to his agent.
“[Panarin] loves the team, he loves the coach. It’s not the team or the way they treat him,” Milstein explained to Portzline. “It’s about, does he want to spend the next eight years in Columbus? That’s the only thing at stake right now. If it was a two-year deal we probably would have done it.
