so who is playing the game of semantics mr. bridge?
Edit: my whole point of these posts is to say that
we cannot resign these players
, one-two have to go regardless. I am starting to wonder what your point is???
Your method of displaying your point sucked and you can remove 'us.' The Sharks won't be paying Patrick Marleau 7.5m to play on the first line. He sees that money if there is a bidding war, which I doubt there will be.
Your 'best case' scenario is also off. You are not a member of the Sharks' brass, you do not now the inner workings of negotiations, their plan, or who is ready to step in. You use logic based on performance. Better performance == higher annual salary. That is fine, except it doesn't account for bonuses, contract limits, and of course the ever popular 'home town discount.'
If you had read my posts, you'd know my point.
