Yep, these are the same facts that I'm going on too:

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."

1.2 is fine for Dupuis in my book. No problem with that at all.
Gaborik is pretty darn good, like Hossa good, like top five young forwards good, and he's more clutch than Thornton, fwiw.
Havlat is worth $2m sorry. But he is.
With these three players, we're not talking about chopped liver, here. They're quality players who are not demanding more than market value. If they weren't playing for OTT and MIN they would have been signed a while ago.
Okay, the post about Fleury's incentives from Steve Latin clears things up for me. Thank you. That is asking too much, I agree.

So, I'll concede that the Fleury demands are out of line, but on the other three I'll stand firm.
