I think if we have a decent playoff run you will see exactly this. All three announced within days of each other and probably negotiated simultanoeusly.

as for SK I just wonder what his thinking is... if he's the kind of guy who wants/thinks he deserves the fat long term deal right now I think he'll be disappointed in what Poile has to offer.

but if he believes he can do even better over the coming years then I could see him signing for 3 years at around 2.25 per to get himself to UFA age
