As far as what we've offered, he can't really divulge that info either, because first of all your team will feel that you don't think they're good enough (we've seen this in the past) and if a $ amount gets out, that can be used against you in negotiations ("you were willing to pay X for X, I think I'm worth that")

I know this time of year is tough on the fans, and I know that this has been a huge blow to our team, but I can guarantee you that Poile is working his phone, looking for ways to improve the club and maximize his assets almost every waking moment. We won't see all the practice swings he takes, we'll just see the homeruns and strikeouts.

And yes, I know the Poile bashers will jump on the "strikeouts" portion of my post and ignore almost all the rest of it.
just like last year when his fax machine was working wrt RFA debacle.
