Not only that, he'll throw in no trade clauses, no movement clauses, etc. I can't imagine what else he offers.

There are some reasons for this, and RFA's don't have leverage as UFA's do, but still, management is flawed. Mainly Sather.
I am still baffled by this guys negotiating techniques. The old story...Masterful at trades, terrible with the checkbook...But what really gets me is when he opens the checkbook, he does so to the reclamation project?

Is it that hard to get players to come to NY? You would think with all there is to do and the relative short distance to travel to other arenas the teams play against that NY would be the perfect destination for a UFA.

Hopefully Messier has better negotiating powers.
