Is this Gaborik, Fleury and Havlat's agent?
Can you give us a recap when it's done?

Thanks in advance.

He said:

Penguins first offer to Fleury massively low.
Pens think new CBA will change bonus structure for rookies.
Just sent Pittsburgh new proposal two hours ago.

Lunched with Risebrough today about Gaborik. Won't say deal will be done soon. Difference bigger than a breadbox, smaller than a 747.

Bewildered that Ottawa paying 2 million for rock concert for fans, fraction of that would have Havlat signed.

I would love to do that interview.

Walsh how is the Gaborik signing going?

- Terrible, we will just have to wait and see.

Walsh how is the Dupuis signing coming along?

- Well, the Wild just haven't offered him anything substantial. We are prepared to wait it out.

Walsh how is MAF contract coming along?

- Well, we didn't liek the original offer so I advised him to leave camp early, so that Penguin management can see that we are serious.

Walsh how is the Havlat situation doing?

- Well, Ottawa just needs to step up and give us an offer we like. Otherwise, I refuse to answer calls and we will sit out the entire season if need be.




Walsh the agent with the player on his heart

damn this guy is an ass. for those that dont know, Craig Patrick's first offer is always a lowball, unless the person is asking for something like 600k. His first offer to hedberg was something like 650k and a 2-way. in the end deal ended up being 1.1M, 1.2M, 1.5M as a one way. its how he forms his basis for negotiations.

On a Montreal Radio Station tonight, Shatia said that it is not impossible that Fleury would fly back as soon as tomorrow in Pittsburgh. They have written a counter proposition to the Pens. But the gap is very large. He said they jusk ask for qhat other first choices got last years.

About Dupuis, he said that both parties negociate and we understood that they are not far from an agreement.

About Gaborik, he said that they were far away an agreement.

Walsh can't get any of his players signed; don't you think that's happening to a certain extent right now?

his counter proposal for MAF is probably the rookie max, similar to what J-Bo got last yera.......

and TSN says he tried to get 2.4 mil for Dupuis. What joke...

This agent Allen Walsh is really trying to get the most out of his 3% commission,isn't he?Walsh is doing his clients more harm than good by keeping them out of camp.Think Don Meehan or another other experienced agent would have so many clients in contract hassles at once.The other guy is that Paul Krepylka who represents Eric Stall,Nathan Horton and Anthony Stewart.He is part of the Bobby Orr group.This guy is another ass.The Horton and Stewart talks have turned nasty.Staal is close to signing.Just a bunch of wannebe Drew Rosenhaus'

$1.2 million is PRETTY REASONABLE for a 24 year old who has a career high of 20 goals and 48 points? Man, I'm glad you're not the GM of my team. That's a pretty hefty salary for a player like that, especially when he has a whopping 76 points to his career. I can see why the Wild are holding firm. Dupuis has a ton to prove before getting that type of money IMO.

As far as I can tell, these are *all* his highest profile clients. He has other players, but it seems these four are his money clients.

This guy is going to need a body guard when going to see his clients play this season. Fans are going to kill him if they knew who he was. Not to mention the owners, coaches, and GMs.

Wrong

I'm afraid Walsh is right. All of his hold out clients are getting severely lowballed by cheap teams right now except for Dupuis. The Bruins would pay these guys more than their current "franchises" are willing to go right now, so Walsh is right on the money. The B's locked up their hot young goalie Toivonen for three years at a generous amount. They've kept all of their up and coming players happy, and the only walk-away was Berard. The Pens take the best goalie prospect in years and then ask him to babysit, while Mary-o is going to cash in this year and then probably dump the team like a hot rock. Again, Walsh is absolutely right. The owners figure that Walsh will break because he can't afford to represent so many holdouts: but the very opposite is true. He's not going to let these franchises that have money issues play him for a sucker.

As for the childish jokes about killing Walsh on these boards, you should all be ashamed of yourselves. What are you guys, three?
