The idea that they aren't close is unbelievable to me. If they were apart on some details that's different.
This is a copycat league, and we all know the formula for this contract. McKenzie is one of the more reliable sources out there so him saying it's not close is a major bummer to me. That likely means one side is likely trying to get cute.
I guess the more disheartening thing is McKenzie puts Subban and Benn in the same category of not close, and the Subban rumors have indicated that could be a lengthy negotiation.
Missing a couple of days is no big deal like you said, I guess I'm just bummed and a bit pessimistic about getting from not close to not missing games.
