Well there are two different perspectives here.
From Fletcher's perspective, the ~$1M you could negotiate down makes literally no difference. We are so far under the cap, and unlikely to find players to throw that space at, that $1M extra for 1 year literally won't affect our roster in any way, shape or form.
From Leipold's perspective, I
understand why not to throw that kind of money at Lats. But that's a personal and/or financial decision, and not a hockey one.
