It's too bad it got this ugly. It'll be interesting to get a sense of the crowd on Thursday's home game. Most of the people I talk to think Gaborik's asking for too much, but I wonder if this latest public spat will shift opinion at all.
Is there still hope? I like to think there is. Management has made a bit of a big deal about how they made they're best offer before the start of training camp, and that's what Dupuis effectively signed. BUT, they did give him that incentives package that improves on that best offer a fair amount. Hopefully the two sides still have the sense to shuffle some money around and come up with some sort of incentives package that satisfies Gaborik. I don't think the team is going to, on the face of it, move from their last base offer, though. Could be a long wait.
