That's what I thought.
You're throwing things without knowing any fact.
So please don't say the Pens, Sens, and Wild are cheap without knowing a single things about the negociations.
What we know so far :
Dupuis asks for too much compared to his value.
Gaborik asks to be paid like Joe Thornton.
Havlat asks to be paid around 2M$ (can sens fans confirm this?)
Fleury asks for top end money with a deal that could go around 4 to 5 M$ with incentives.

These are facts.
Now the team offers are not known. There's no way to know if they're lowballing their players except if the offers seem reasonnable and they're still not signed.
I think for everyone of these players, their asking price is too much.
I'm 100% behind every one of these GMs right now.
Mr Wlash is ruining the future of players that have not proven anything. Remember that with the upcoming lockout, these players might not be paid at all for TWO years. Maybe more.
That's bad counseling. Especially since most of these guys could be locked up for long contracts.
