I have to wonder if someone else - Chicago - got involved and they have to give it more time to get things right. In other words I don't think this is a good sign for us at all, if it was us we would know today.
Sorry, that doesnt make sense at all. Maybe another offer that is tempting, but no way is a new team going to come in, structure a deal to the players liking and then that player forgets all other offers. If anything he has this new offer and is looking at what other teams are willing to redo to match it.
This may mean the Devils are still in it and he's waiting for the Devils to structure the money the best they can.
Only logical reason I can think of.
Either he wants one more day to see if he's content with leaving NJ to go elsewhere, or he wants one more day to make sure he's content with spending the rest of his career in NJ. At least that's how I take it. Gotta be one of the two.
