Gandler wants at least $5 million per for Antropov

Nik Antropov has hired Mark Gandler after he dumped Don Meehan

Quote:
Sather meanwhile categorized the contract demands from impending unrestricted free agent Nik Antropov, whom the Blueshirts acquired from Toronto at the deadline for a second-round pick, as "ridiculous."

"Based on the first volley from [agent] Mark Gandler, there is a slim chance [of Antropov returning]," the general manager said following the fifth round of the Entry Draft. "There's a snowball's chance in hell that's going to happen. It's ridiculous. I hate to criticize an agent, but let's have a little bit of reality here."

Antropov, who scored seven goals in 18 regular-season games for the Blueshirts but was barely a factor in the first-round defeat by Washington, earned $2.05 million last year. He's believed seeking a long-term deal for at least $5 million per. Good luck to him.

Gandler is up to his old tricks. He has been quiet since Yashin went to Russia.

Is Antropov the kind of player that wouldn't have second thought about just ditching and going to th KHL?

Wait, he fired his old agent and then picks up Gandler?

He must not want to play in the NHL again...

If Antropov wants 5 million from a team, he can go back to Russia. I don't want the UFA market to be even more expensive, especially with this tight salary cap situation we have right now.

Here I was thinking about the prospects of Leafs possibly inquiring of his services again, if the price seemed right.

You can stay in hell, Antropov.

In this day and age, if I wanted a lot of money as a UFA, I'd go to Sather too.

Well if he looks at what a player like Dustin Penner got--he will get about 4.5 a year

Antropov's 3 step plan for contract years
1. Sit back and smoke $2.05 million in crack
2. Become UFA
3. Ask for 5 million in free agency.

Next time
1. Sit back and smoke 5 million in crack
2. Become UFA again
3. Ask for 10 million

Penner was an offer sheet...You need to overpay on those or else it's just pointless since the original team will just match.

Guys, I hate to play I told you so's, but I predicted he'd be asking for around this much months ago. They'll probably settle in around 4.5 for four years or something once FA hits, but it looks like it won't be in NY.
