The B's locked up their hot young goalie Toivonen for three years at a generous amount. They've kept all of their up and coming players happy, and the only walk-away was Berard. The Pens take the best goalie prospect in years and then ask him to babysit, while Mary-o is going to cash in this year and then probably dump the team like a hot rock. Again, Walsh is absolutely right. The owners figure that Walsh will break because he can't afford to represent so many holdouts: but the very opposite is true. He's not going to let these franchises that have money issues play him for a sucker.

As for the childish jokes about killing Walsh on these boards, you should all be ashamed of yourselves. What are you guys, three?
Walsh up until yesterday made no connections with the teams.....he is a terrible agent. Usually you make a counteroffer immeadiately not 4 days before the season begins. This guy is a joke, and is just advising his players to hold out so that HE can get more money, after all, he is on a percentage.
