Now, if the negotiations doensn't go accordingly, wouldn't be surprise to see that rumor pop up again.

I would love to believe that it is case, and it may probably well be, but I have more the tendancy to believe that it's Meehan at his best working for his client.
I think you are bang on....

Meehan is one of the best agents out there in the hockey world.... I don't think he'd do anything that he feels would cost his client (or himself) money. He's obviously discussed a strategy with Andrei.... Andrei wants to stay and they know Bob Gainey is a fair GM, there is no need to start a war of words in the media and create resentment. I'm sure they will a get a deal done that is agreeable for both sides.
