What kind of money does EC think he can get?

Nice to see Shelley talks have started, hope they can get it done by tomorrow.

Hahahahaha. **** Christensen, then. Sather claims him off waivers and helps resurrect his career and he has the balls to reject a 2 year deal and test the market?

Have fun in the AHL or Europe, Erik.

I guess he was so worried about developing some hockey sense these last few years, he forgot to develop any business sense whatsoever. No team is going to give him anything more, or near for that matter.

If we don't re-sign Christensen, we'd better be locking up Prospal for another 1 year deal. Dubinsky looked so much better on the wing...i'd hate to see him move back to center.

Does he think he will get money and play on the 1st line with a star player like Gaborik somewhere else?

I think it's possible a team might give him 2 years ~$1mil per year. This is apparently what we weren't willing to pay (let's be honest, Christensen isn't worth Rissmiller, Voros, Brashear type money)

Don't let the door hit you on the way out we don't want your hind prints on our nice new doors. We want to save our glass for a special rear end like Redden's...although at that sayonara the glass would likely shatter with how hard the door would hit him.

Would you sign up to be a first line center on a team that pays their spare tire and 2 guys buried in the minors more per year than you?

The fact that Slats refused to qualify him to avoid arbitration was one thing, attempting to get him to sign cheaper and longer would rub anyone the wrong way.

I guess it is possible that some team might make that type of offer. I just think it's almost a certainty that he is waiver/Europe bound.

He always shows restraint with re-signing players. Let's wait and see what happens on the UFA before we parade the streets.

He's probably nickel and diming Staal, Christensen, Shelley, etc. so he can go waste money on Ponikarovsky, Frolov, Demitra, Lombardi, etc.

This kid was one step away from playing in europe, he said so himself. he should be kissing sather's hairy bean bag from plucking him off of waivers and giving him another chance. He hasn't earned anything but another shot.

Hardly implies he has an "attitude." He has the right to do what he perceives to be best for him. Becoming a free agent may be that. You don't know the terms of the offer, nor do you know the level of interest in him in the market. This is business. I'd like for him to be here, but if he's not, I have no reason not to wish him the best. He seemed to be a good guy and he was a good contributor here.

the reaction is a little strong considering we don't know what the offer is. Christensen owes Sather nothing.

Plenty of teams will give him a shot at 1 year $1mil.
Christensen can get more than 6 figures a year in this league. Doesn't matter if Sather gave him another chance, he's going to do his part to get his cash.

I think $1mil per for a year or two is fair value, especially the way we hand out cash like this to crap free agents. The fact that Sather nickel and dimed the offer down ~200K is a slap in the face.

And I hope to god it doesn't result in Sather going out and spending some insane amount of cash to land a Lombardi, or going with an awful stopgap at center like Modano, Eric Belanger, or Brandon Morrison.

The offer shouldn't be much considering he was a ****ing waiver pick up. I wouldn't offer him more than 1M.

Screw Christensen. Haven't been so mad in a while.

Torts and Sather GIVE him a career. If they waived him, it's OVER for him. Instead, Torts gives him SERIOUS minutes on a line with Gaborik.

Take the offer back and watch him fail out of the NHL.


But please resign Shelley.

I could see Sather offering him less than that.... What was the QO amount anyway?

me neither. I assure you the offer was less than $1M, as they didn't qualify him at less than that.

Sure seems like a smart thing for him to do. Teams were clamoring for him and so high on him. Im sure that huge 26 points he put up will net him millions.
