It is somewhat encouraging that they're willing to negotiate on incentives though. Seems I'm in a positive mood about the situation today; I think Dupuis should get the 4 year deal and negotiate nice incentives.
I hope they've got a lot of incentives up their sleeves. If Dupuis wanted $1 million for 1 year and $1.25 million/yr. for 2 years, the Wild are going to have to come up with some easily reachable incentives to get from $800,000/yr to where Dupuis will want to be over 4 years.
