Yeah but it's all timing. The cap has gone up and 4.5 is the new 3.75.

I wonder if this sits until they see what happens with the Weber deal or if they are negotiating a deal knowing he wil be sent to NSH as a separate deal to get some if their picks back?

I wonder if Voracek is fearful of being moved to NSH so isn't in a rush to sign a new deal?
