Who knows?

It's pretty clear that signing Tuukka to a long-term deal is priority #1, and the B's are pretty tight up against the cap. Team/Player might never have been close.

I honestly never got the sense that a "hometown discount" would be in play for 18. Based on his playoff performance (disappearing act against your Hawks not withstanding) he can get paid more elsewhere.

A Bruin fan really should thank him for his playoff efforts, especially game 7 2001 against MTL. But I'll be honest; Ference moving away stings more than this does.
