Meszaros signs offer sheet, Unknown Team ATM

http://www.thehockeynews.com/article...ther-team.html
Quote:
Hours after Ottawa GM Bryan Murray held a news conference to announce the team was at a contractual impasse with restricted free agent defenseman Andrej Meszaros, The Hockey News has learned from a source close to the negotiations that Meszaros has agreed to a multi-year offer sheet with an average salary in excess of $5 million per season.

The team that has agreed to terms with the 22-year-old has yet to be confirmed.

When contacted by The Hockey News, Murray wouldn't confirm the report.

"Iíve heard rumors that thatís happening, but thereís no confirmation of that at this point," said Murray.
I wonder who the team is.

I'm going to trust the poster on the Sens board and assume it is TB.

Why would Vancouver send out an offer sheet to Meszaros? Unless they have a deal in place to trade a defenseman for a forward..

Tampa is doing all the bold moves Gillis said HE'D make! The dirty ********.


If true, what does $5 million of RFA compensation goodness land you nowadays?

0% if it is indeed over 5.0M annually.

It depends on the team and how much the compensation is.

Two firsts a second and a third. I probably would not match.

A first a second and a third, I would.

0-2%

If Murray wasn't budging over 3.5

5+ is not even close.

I don't see why not. They have 6M+ in cap space.

Well when you consider they had a press conference saying they would not pay him $4.5 million earlier today why would they all of the sudden be willing to pay $5 million?

Schneider is Ducks property

Come to think of it, Mezsaros is not a d-man I'd throw a 5 million+ offer sheet at during a rebuild. Tampa makes a lot of sense as some have said.

Who is desperate for a top-4 puck mover?

Boston, Columbus, New Jersey, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, St. Louis, LA?
