Right as proven by Boston trading a 1st and Colborne for him(I'm sure they knew him well from the 8 head to head games a year) and Carolina giving him 3 years at 4.25 mil(I'm sure Rutherford didn't watch him play for Boston).
He didn't help the Bruins pp at all during that Cup run and was useless for them
Rutherford said it was a big mistake signing him a week prior to the trade with us
I doubt his father told him to have no self-respect either, i'm sure his father also told him to believe in himself...why do you assume he's being greedy?
Why don't you assume he just wants to get compensated for what HE thinks is fair?
We as fans shouldn't intertwine what we want as fans...with what a player thinks he sould be compensated for his services.
Contracts are between team and player...not between player/fan & team/fan
Not to sound like an ass...but this doesn't concern you.
You clearly missed the point of my post. Where did I say PK himself was being greedy. (I was in fact suggesting the opposite.)
I was saying that it looks like Meehan encouraging to ask for more than PK might be cool with.
I ASSUME that PK realizes what is fair. As you said, negotiations don't produce necessarily fair results. If things are at a standstill, it's because PK's camp is asking for what is, to most of us, unfair to the team. And WE are Habs fans who want to see this guy on the ice ASAP. Imagine what other fans (who at the very least don't have a bias towards liking him) would think of the kind of overpayment he's asking for!
Not to sound like an ass, but, how exactly does this then concern...you?
Also it does concern me in the sense that the fact that this negotiation is taking so long is negatively impacting my life and should we lose Saturday, will VERY much so.
