I don't like Winter's recent posturing. First they tell us they have a confidentiality agreement and now they're trying to negotiate through the media. None of the other holdouts have gone this way. The worst has been Havlat and Gaborick saying they’re going home. Big deal. With Winter we have all sort of innuendo about trade demands and irreconcilable differences. This is the one time in a player’s career under the current CBA where he has no bargaining power. They had Lowe backed into a corner three years ago and he gave them a good deal and now the roles are reversed. Winter and Comrie need to deal with that fact, suck it up and accept whatever the Oilers are offering IMHO.
