Curious, but do you have any expectations on if this thing will continue to be drawn out or if it will reach a conclusion anytime soon?
Bull headed is correct, but I really am hoping the both sides will stay bull headed until summer and not talk at all (even to Dater via e-mail) and that the Avs continue too ask for more in a trade than anyone will pay. Then come back fresh with both sides clearing the slate. I think a deal can be done, but in the Avs defense, the NYRs often take a hard line with contracts, and still get the deals done.
Can't remember who said it, but they basically said Sather's approach is (paraphrasing) You'll get the money, but you've got to wait your turn.
