Fehr is going to use this offer against the owners to tank any effort to eliminate the crazy deals we've seen this summer and to a limited amount, last summer (particularly Brad Richards).
Agreed, and what makes it worse is he probably did this intentionally knowing that. The way I see it, he acted on this idea because it might raise the stakes for a lock-out which makes it even harder for Nashville to match. THAT to me is even worse...

Like I said, I love the man, and it's awesome to see someone who wants to win this bad. You just have to go about it the right way. Yes this is allowed in the current rules, but you are correct. I think he's just getting older and wants a cup ASAP. At 79, he is trying to make that happen soon.
