So I can see where PK would be demanding at least 4.5 (and that would be cheap IMO) long term.

And looking at Gorges' contract I didn't realize he had a signing bonus this year either. Another CBA loud mouth with a signing bonus.

Anyway, can't help to think PK looks at Gorges, Kaberle and Markov and probably thinks - um give me some dough because I've actually played a lot of hockey and put up some numbers too while filling for these guys (Gorges/Markov). Kaberle - well he's another story. LOL
PK loves the fire.... he spent the whole lockout doing media...
