It's a tricky situation for Sherman. First, you have to stand your ground against agents or they'll run you over in the future. Just look at Calgary that has to give scrubs NTCs while overpaying them just because they started giving NTCs to scrubs. Secondly, hockey players are idiot negotiators. They are too proud and competitive to look at it as pure business. They see offers as challenges and you if you put pressure on them, they make a point of not backing down.

The CBA negotiation and now this mess. Ugh. Hockey players.
