-The sticking point for us resigning him is he wants 4 years in term, and it's rumored 4-5 mil in cap. If he were going for 3 x 2, or even 3 x 3 we'd give it to him in a heartbeat

This is his retirement contract, he made squat the past few years, and this is his chance to cash in.
Sensible post...he will be looking to hit the jackpot and likely get it. But being 34, Montreal can do better than give a guy who will soon be a declining asset a 4 year contract between 4-5 million per.
