From the get go this hasn't looked like a deal was in any way trying to be reached reasonably from either side.
Sather doesn't really operate that way though. He's always trying to fit as much under the cap as he can, so he ends up having to give players shorter term deals to keep their AAV lower. That isn't necessarily a bad thing in many cases, but it isn't always a good thing either.
