We may all be over reacting a bit to a classic Uncle Larry article that provides no quotes, no solid facts, and is based on "unnamed sources" and other illusions. Many GMs rarely negotiate with UFAs until after the draft, which is what I think Slats' plan is all along.

IF this turns out to be true, I think I have to give Slats credit for not being held hostage by these players. This strategy may have some of them returned to us for less than what it may have cost us now. If not, I trust Schoenfeld, Clarke, Renney, and Slats to make decisions that are in the best interest of this team's short, medium, and long term future. The latter two of which I know wouldn't include any of these players with the exception of Rosie.
