Probably just working out details to a contract.
This.

High end RFAs entering the debatable "bridge" contract period will always have the back and forth with their teams.

Do you...

1. Sign for the maximum 8 years where they buy out all of your remaining RFA years and several UFA years on a sizable deal. See Harmonic's deal... though he's not in Pietrangelo's league

2. Sign the traditional bridge contract where all of your (or all but 1 of) RFA leaving you line up for a big deal at a ripe age. See Giroux and Subban.
