[QUOTE=101st_fan;52825987]You can rant that he lowballed all you want. It remains a baseless claim with no factual support. It's your feeling ... your guess ... still lacking fact.
If this contract is similar to Suter's in structure, we probably don't see this debate because the team probably finds a way to suck up $25mil in bonuses in three years after losing Suter to Minnesota.
Why would somebody predict such a bonus? Well, you're the one claiming this is so foreseeable, so predictable, yet NOBODY predicted something like this. You're trying to have it both ways and demonstrating a cognitive disconnect in the process. Either a mega-bonus laden offer sheet was was an obviously forthcoming event and EVERYONE failed to predict it, or the generic claims of a potential offer sheet failed to come close to foreseeing what Snider and Holmgren put forth. Which is it? Was it a case of an attack could happen or did ANYONE actually foresee what eventually happened?[/QUOTE
So my opinion is ranting now? Why is that because it goes against your opinion? I guess you are ranting to without any "facts" or "basis" So as i move on. I can say my opinion and i believe that Suter was not offered the amount he was until after Nashville was feeling the heat from other teams after he was a free agent. Since you are so sure of what you say and are so willing to point out what i am saying is incorrect. Show the proof that says he was offered the contracts he saw after he became a free agent by the Nashville Predators?
On your pointless offer sheet argument like i said before anyone with common sense would have known that if an offer sheet came to the table for Shea Weber it would be a huge overpayment and would be tough for Nashville to match. Simply no point in making an offer for a player you want unless you are going to make it very tough for the other team. It's not brain surgery and it has nothing to do with predicting things that lead to war.
Why dont you explain why Ryan Suter and Shea Weber could possibly no longer be Nashville Predators?
