interesting that Pietrangelo re the Blues is maybe gearing up for sort of Doughty-esque showdown.

I can't believe St.L. won't just pay the guy Doughty money (which i'm sure he's looking for).

That's one thing I like about our team...they don't get into aggressive negotiations with players who are important to us. Look at Leddy...I'm fine with his contract. It's a bridge contract - so he's got his two years to show us which way he's going...but it was also generous - and, i think, communicates that the Hawks view him as important and have faith in him.

with that said..it's also more than mere generosity - the hawks are too image obsessed to stomach a holdout.

in any event, maybe it's just me, but i think hardballing your best/projected to be best players is bad business - i feel the same w/ how the habs dealt w/ subban.
