I read that was the figure the player was looking for and management was looking for something around three and a half. I'm saying that Maloney could meet the player's asking price, knowing he'll give up three (hopefully late round) picks, burn a bridge with a former in-conference trade partner and have a very good chance of winning the holy grail before Shane Doan retires. And if Colorado matches, it will be at a number that they didn't want and will be limited in other parts of their budget accordingly, or their owner will have to pony up more money over the next couple years than he anticipated. Either way, the Yotes are better off for it.
