I'm not convinced BM has made his best offer, but it's probably close. Do you think Getzlaf's $8.25 was on the table from the beginning? I'm betting it only finally came together a couple of days before we heard about the signing. It's a tough poker game the GMs have to play. But unless Perry has already told Bob he's moving closer to home I expect Bob to lay all his cards on the table right about now. Even if Bob wants to keep him for a playoff run he has to have time to shop him to see just what he could get. It's his job.
