How could any GM/Owner be that dense? It seems absurd to the point that there must be some other factor at play here that is, thus far, hidden from view
That's what I asked myself from the start. It makes no sense.
But at the same time, why is there such a disconnect?? I mean, at least in Dallas, rumors were that parties were getting closer. They weren't exactly on par but were set on making concessions and coming to an agreement.
In Mtl, it's as if they are worlds apart, which leads one to believe, where are they?
Every single rumor has been consistent about one thing, Habs management want a small term deal, at a cheap rate. It's the only thing that has consistently been brought up. Even considering PK's camp, we've heard Doughty money, we've heard 5M, we've heard PK willing to drop down to 2years. But the one constant, management going with 2y at a cheap price.
So, I'm still scratching my head.
