This is doubtful. It's common sence though. We didnt get Nash. Why would he admit to offering Clowe.

1. It lowers Clowe's trade value if other GMs know he's being shopped.

2. Clowe is still part of this team, you dont want him to think we were trying to get rid of him.

DW can and will tell Pollock what he wants. Doesnt have to be true.

So basically hell ****ing no.
To me this is Shane Doan saying, im extending my deadline, without saying it. He knows he isnt getting 7.5m per for 4 years, so he accomplished 1 of 2 things.

1. Since no one is going to give him that type of money, he has bought phoenix more time. Teams will have to negotiate, that will take time, which gives Phoenix more time.


2. He set the price at a price so high that it is a cant say no type offer.
