DP is not always proactive in signing players. Like when Weber was named captained, publicly expressed interest in singing a long-term deal, and Poile said "call him old-fashion but he prefers to do meetings face to face" when referring to working out an extension with his agent.
And when Suter was soon to UFA, and DP told them media he was too busy to deal with Suter because he had been working on the Weber arbitration case.
Legwand already approached mgmt about an extension after he went on his streak. He was denied. Both Poile and Trotz have expressed disappointment in Legwand publicly since he signed his last contract. He's not the first-born golden child in their eyes. I doubt he's resigned unless it's a cheap 1 or 2 yr deal. I think they are ready to move on.
