Good point. I think Baltimore (his agent) is still looking at Phaneuf's deal as the marker, but the Panthers look at Green's deal & the production numbers to try to meet somewhere in the middle. If anything, I think it could pave the way for some compromise...that is, if Jay is even willing to sign beyond 1 year.
Rolston turned down Tampa's 4 mill per year offer...that's good news. He is the best FA available for this team's needs. Face it, we're not signing Hossa, so let's replace Olli's salary with the best 2-way forward on the market in Rolston. I could def be okay with 4-5 mill per for him and you could put an A or a C on his jersey immediately too.
