I haven't seen any details published yet.

In a radio interview on The Team here yesterday, which was replayed a couple of times, Barnett said that it is a three-year deal at less than $3M per.

In a radio interview on the same station with Scott Howson ... he said the rumoured number was $2.9M per over three years. And that IF this number was correct, then the Oilers were higher than that over a 2 year deal and lower on a 3 year deal. And that Nedved's agent did NOT come back to the Oilers to see if they would match the Coyote's offer.

It sounds similar to the Guerin situation a couple of years ago ... where Hicks said he wouldn't make an offer, but that if Bill wanted to come to Texas he would match the best offer he had gotten from elsewhere (in that case NYR).

Hope this helps.

EDMONTON SUN: Robin Brownlee suggests Petr Nedved may have used the Oilers as "a bargaining chip" in talks with other teams. The reporter also suggest Nedved may not have intended to return to the Oilers and casts doubt on Nedved's claim that his decision to sign with the Phoenix Coyotes was a hockey decision. Brownlee reports the Nedved camp never gave Oilers GM Kevin Lowe an opportunity to match the three-year, $8.7 million contract they signed with the Coyotes. Nedved's agent claims he couldn't reach an agreement with Lowe and looked elsewhere, which included the Coyotes and the Boston Bruins. Lowe believes Nedved was never interested in returning to the Oilers. Brownlee notes Phoenix is only a commuter flight away from Los Angeles, where Nedved's supermodel wife is apparently entertaining movie offers.
