Evening Line

“They felt very strongly the number had to have a three at the beginning and we felt very strongly it shouldn’t have a three.  And the number—where we ended up—was within the range, that we did an internal analysis on, we felt the arbitrator could come down with.”

-Calgary Flames Assistant GM Jay Feaster on Ian Whte’s contract of $2,999,995.  More on this from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun at Slam.

Yeah, and if he ever needs to be traded, they can say that a team can have his services for the low, low price of 5 installments of $599,999.

You sure showed them how to play hardball, Calgary.  rolleyes

“It’s less than $20.00! This fine product can be yours for the low, low price of $19.97!” level of pathetic. If he was worth about $3 million to the team, then just give him the extra five bucks and make him happy with the number. If for no other reason than to make the numbers easier to read on sites like capgeek and whatnot. smile
