I have no doubt the Jackets would agree, but I also would expect Bob's agent to be fighting tooth and claw for his big payday to immediately be based on this past season. I would suppose that is the basis for the entire negotiations process - Bob's team repeating "Vezina, Vezina, Vezina..." and JK/JD replying, "one short season, one short season, one short season..."

It's a business, I'll try to wait until there is a result before I form an opinion on how it all went down.
