Its creating unecessary conflict with a player we're trying to build our blueline around. There's nothing intelligent about doing this at all.

I can understand making him sit if he was asking for 6 or 7 million. But that's not the case...

Players of his calibre are making 5 million a season. He's a first pairing blueliner which easily puts him at that price.

By saying 3.5 max you are seriously hurting your own credibility. What's shocking though is that the Canadiens aren't even offering this much. Now we've got an unnecessary showdown coming. Not sure if you are actually a fan of the Montreal Canadiens but if you are then you shouldn't be happy about this. We've gone down a totally stupid path for absolutely no reason.
