I'll just add to what Troy and Glove said ....

The ownership and management have tied themselves to Roy. You have a fan base that is sick and tired of not spending money to make this team better, and you've told them on several occasions you're going to sign Roy. I don't think it's a bad thing they've decided he's their guy, but they don't really have a reasonable option to change their mind.

They are essentially stuck to this guy and better get a deal done. Plus, you have the Ott fan boys that are still butt hurt about him being gone. If you only get 1 year out of Roy you'll see anger from many fans and media (Bob Sturm has been whining since they let Ott go ... and can only imagine his out cry when Morrow finally gets a pink slip).
