Colorado is asking way too much at this point, the best negotiating tactic we could use right now is a big NO.

Then maybe the price will come down, if not, let the team that payed too much for him suffer
Yeah, lets just sit back and let 28 other teams be aggressive in trying to acquire him. Then when a team like Ottawa ponies up and gets him (just like Turris last year btw) we can see him shutting down CoHo or Grigorenko for the next decade. Sounds brilliant. Also, the worry of him not signing shouldn't really be an issue, it's Colorado that wont pay him what he wants, the team that does trade for him will.
