I agree, but looking back there were signs and reasons to be taking Zach's words with a grain of salt even though they sounded genuine.

I don't think that is there with Elias and Zubs, they are legit, plus we can be pretty safe in assuming no team worth anything is going to beat down their doors and blow Lou's offers out the window.

Clarkson, I definitely think he legit wants to stay and will try to, but ya the potential of a team like the Leafs offering him stupid 5+ money exists and makes his return less likely. (Unless he gives us a REAL hometown discount...or the market isn't actually there. The latter of which is more realistic.)
