Sounds like this thread is pretty plausible to me.
Well I dont think its heading in that direction. Of course its one fans view of the situation from the outside looking in. I think what Yzerman is doing is basically trying to get the number down as much as possible. I still think he resigns because of what he does for the Lightning. However getting his number down sure makes SY's job as a GM a hell of a lot easier. Wouldnt you say. Although he is SY. We did get Bergenheim for nothing last year and he ends up being one of the top scorers in the postseason. He seems to know what kind of players we need for our role guys. I really just think hes trying to play it super safe. In the end he will sign.
