I mean, that is fair... even going 3-4 years at 5.5 is fine.

PK must be asking for 6 million+ and Habs won't go higher than 5.75 (Markov money)... PK hasn't shown to be good as Markov or earn that money... with Karlsson at 6.5, PK shouldn't be sniffing 6 million yet.

It's a bad situation and I am glad it's not my team having to deal with it... it reminds me of Phil Kessel with Boston a few years ago... due to Boston's cap structure they were only offering Kessel 2-3 year deals at 4-4.5 I believe... Kessel wanted more money and went to Toronto and got paid.

I have a feeling PK will do the same... not Toronto, but out of Montreal
As far as destinations that PK will end up, I see Toronto as the most likely destination, then Florida, Philly and Boston in that order.

When this is all over I don't see PK staying as a Hab for more then a year or two, at the most.
