So it would take 4 years now to "buy" the first year of UFA; two years would make sense but I don't know if he buys that. But then again offer sheets are rare. But pissed off goalies aren't a great asset. Like i said in an earlier post if he plays out pretty well, Jarmo has a very interesting situation ot deal with.
Thanks for the info.

A good situation, me thinks. He doesn't have to pay him the big money for a while. PK Subban tried to force the hand of Montreal-he sat out 4 or so games this season-and lost. The consensus on Subban is that he's stands a great chance of being an elite defenseman.

Jarmo has a lot of cap room. I don't see signing Bob will be that taxing an issue.
