So there are a few things I am confused about here and I apologize in advance if I just misunderstood what you said, but I do happen to misunderstand what you write I would love for you to clarify it.

First, you call out someone for speculating the intentions of Halak's agent, which is something that is completely ration considering that speculation is not fact; it is just opinion and guessing about situations that we know nothing about.

You follow this up by claiming that once both deals(Halak and Price's contracts) are out, we may like this deal(the Halak trade) even less. So, you must be speculating the contents of Price's contract. There seems to be a contradiction in your reasoning, after all you have no fact other than personal sentiment to believe that the deal may be worse because after all you are insinuating that Price's contract will be expensive because what other reason would there be for the deal to be worse after the contracts are signed. I would love for you to clarify this point.

The next point I would like clarified is the followin: You mentioned that once both signings are out, the deal may look less appealing because of course you are assuming that Price will get a hefty contract because that is what the concern is about and you are acting as though it's a possibilty. However, you follow this up by claiming that you don't believe Price will get more money(refering to the fact that people are mentioning that now that he is the clear#1 he can ask for the moon) and that it is ridiculous to think so because he has no bargaining power...If this is the case, why do you suspect that once both signings will be out, the Halak deal may look even worse.

I would love for you to clarify this in case there are misunderstandings.
