Taking a home town discount doesn't mean playing for half of what he can get on the market.
A home town discount is taking 16-19 mil over 4 years(front loaded). Over 4 years Koivu can get 20 to 22 AT LEAST on the UFA market. You don't think Vancouver would pay that if they are offering 20 min over 2 years for Sundin?
