Precisely, which is why this thread should be shut down again. I'll leave it to Seph and Killer to decide that, seeing as it's been shut down once and reopened, but in my ming the McK post obviates the need for this thread.

I agree with your TOTALLY agree.

The Isles will give a quality offer, then be prepared to go a little higher, at that point...to me it becomes simple...Hey Ryan, do you want to be an Islander or not? If it takes him more than a nanosecond to say yes, pull the offer off the table & say "Thanks for a wonderful 2 months"...& that's that. I LOVE Ryan Smyth. But c'mon, the Isles have to have pride too.
I'm just hoping it's not like the Aucoin negotiations...where he just took the money Chicago handed him and didn't give MM a chance to match. That was bothersome. Here was a guy whose career was changed for the better by playing on LI, where he was free to play 50 minutes a game if he wanted to and he didn't even both to see if MM would match 250k higher?

Isles4ever11: I've heard nothing but great things about Pitt the past five years. Before that, I hadn't heard one good thing since the 70's/80's when the Steelers were "scary good" (apologies to the Sabres for usage of term "scary good").

Does it look relatively new there, as in buildings being erected constantly?

Yup, I agree. I was letting people have their opportunity to speak on this but I think that McKenzie shooting it down as false per Smyth's agent is enough reason to end the discussion on it.

Howie, what do you think?




DEAL!

It's a legit source, and has been confirmed as having actually appeared, so it's allowed by HFBoards site rules. I originally closed it because at the time there was no confirmation of the report. If we shut down every rumor thread that had a very low quantity of truthiness, well, we pretty much wouldn't have rumor threads anymore

But I will takes this as an opportunity to remind posters to take rumors in general, and especially ones like this, with a serious grain of salt. Remember percisely what the word rumor means, and remember what rumors were like back in junior high -- really, these aren't much different.
