A QO is a de-facto contract, approved by the NHL in our case. The smart thing for both parties would be for Upshall to sign it (I think he will) and then to see how he works out, this season. I think he is trying to play a bit of hardball because perhaps he overachieved and wants to cash in. Maloney isnt buying that and rightfully so. I love Scottie but his ass can be traded at any time for someone who wants to be here and wont squabble over hundreds of thousands. Really, the guy has not paid his dues yet or really stuck with a team so to speak. I don't blame DM at all for the situation. We all know he is masterful with contracts.

This will be announced tomorrow, sometime. NHL office doesn't exactly work the graveyard shift.
