almost every player going into ufa says the same thing. in most cases bottom line is salary and then chances of winning a cup. where do we stand on both accounts?
Garrison said that like twice and only for a couple months. He was just being nice. He obviously wanted to go to Vancouver, and took a hometown discount to go there. He could have gotten more than Wideman if he wanted to from Detroit or somebody else. Weiss has been saying he wants to be here for years, and he could have left if he wanted to two years ago when Tallon offered it to him. As long as we don't lowball him, which I doubt we will, I'd think we have a great chance at re-signing him. Sorry I just don't see anyone offering Weiss 6.5M or anything crazy like that, that would be downright stupid for a No.2 center especially because the cap is going to go down in the next CBA.
