Why in the hell not?? It's happen before and it will happen again, and I'm not saying this is what's happening but it sure is a possibility.

That sounds just like Kovy except Ilya was worse and went to visit his potential destinations...

I think this is correct

Just move on before Semin is signed

I don't understand why we never sign these guys before other teams can swoop in & to put it in Marty's words "mess with your head" with offers that only inflate the price you pay for the FA in the end. Why can we just never sign these guys early to reasonable deals before anyone else can get a crack at it?

Is there a rule that prevents it?

He has to be talking to his fiance since it greatly concerns her and where she will be living and working, parents maybe as well, at least JP.

I think Minnesota I've heard. Maybe even North Dakota? I don't believe she's from Jersey, but I've heard she really likes it there.

Uh, sorry, it isn't a player's responsibility to placate to fans who have nothing better to do than sit at their computers hitting refresh.

Awesome so he'll go home and talk to his father who will tell him to sign anywhere other than NJ.

It's quite possible.

And it's not the same as Kovy because Kovy was trying to get LA to up their offer. Zach's trying to get us to up our offer. LA wouldn't up their offer, we can't.

Sadly I agree. If he has to "talk to family" he's selling them on a change.

That's a killshot right there. Every time I've seen a player say he has to talk to his family, he's telling them it's time to move.

I thought the delay might give us hope, but at this point, Lou probably has given his best offer.

Oh Well.

It might be, our offer maybe further away then we would like and it is making the decision harder for him.
