Maybe some Avs fans can help out the rest of us? Is there something particularly significant about the delay?
Strickland just likes to talk about EJ?

I'm guessing he has a good relationship with him from his days with the Blues or maybe he has a source close to him. That's why he has mentioned his contract negotiations a couple of times now. Before he said talks were going well.

Probably one of the few guys Strickland can actually get some legit information from so he put it out there. Although, what he said about EJ not re-signing until July 1st because of a rule isn't really breaking news.

This is what Strickland said on Tuesday:

Negotiations between Erik Johnson and Colorado are going smoothly.
So I doubt he's just waiting for an offersheet from another team.
