Salary confirmed at $1.5M:

Maybe I'm making too big a deal about this, but I just don't get why Barnett wasn't able to match or even slighty beat Philly's offer. That's 25 proven NHL goals that PHX REALLY needs and is totally affordable. That's why I said in another thread that Sands probably didn't dig it in PHX. Maybe mgmt didn't dig Sanderson? He'd get loads of ice in PHX, but in Philly there are like 42 gazillion forwards.

Can someone explain this to mentally challenged me?

hard to say, i would think that barnett has the money earmarked for other guys. you still have comrie and nagy to sign, and that will likely take up a lot of cap space. maybe they felt they needed a buffer zone with those contracts still on their way.

There was an article that Phoenix did make a decent offer to Sanderson. He missed their deadline as he expected he could get more money when he turned UFA. His offers turned out not to be that great and the Phoenix one looked a lot better in hindsight and both sides were worse off. I guess Barnett doesnt go back on final offers. Which is reasonable when you're trying to build a roster and manage your budget.

Speculation even if there is a link.

I think this is also another clue to the fact that Primeau is retiring.
FYI I just interviewed Primeau on Wednesday in Port Elgin. He has no intention of retiring at this point, but is questionable for the start of the season. Says he isn't even considering his options outside of hockey and is 100% committed to coming back.
