Contract Talk Speculation...

06/26/2007 at 11:17pm EDT
Eyes on the Prize is getting anxious about the contract negotiations going on between Sheldon Souray and Bob Gainey. 100 hours before free agency kicks in... will he get signed or won't he? Robert composes an interesting theoretical conversation between the two sides, with Souray's agent thrown in the mix. Apparently, a negotiation with Souray might include:
SS: It's not about the money I'll seek, Bob. The team... BG: If it isn't then why didn't you sign either of our two offers....if it's not about money? SS: (Long pause) I just want fair money, Bob. BG: Our offer was fair enough, don't you think? SS: In terms what might be my market value....I don't know....I'm not really sure.
The whole thing got me thinking about what might be happening between Dave Nonis and Jeff Cowan right about now...
JC: Not too complicated, man. I want 2 years, $600K per. And a little respect. DN: We respect you, we really respect you, Jeff. But you know the kind of deals we need to get done. Hell, there's even idiots out there speculating that we're trading Willie Mitchell, we're so tight on cash! JC: I am the Brabarian. Women strip off their lingerie at your hockey games and throw it on the ice because of me. And thus, as long as I'm here, Mitchell will never leave and no seat will ever be empty. DN:..... DN:..... DN: Fine. Done. Sign here.
Problem solved.
