So next issue is to give Saku a one day contract and retire a CH and we are good.

yes, but the better defenceman can say PK got X amount so I deserve X amount +. I'm just considering the possibility that this is more about the agent than about PK. Once PK is signed he no longer cares, but how much he signs for will have an impact for the agent's clients in the next few years.

To add to my post below, I think there is a factor to consider. Kane and Toews have set a new benchmark for forwards in the new CBA. For PK all comparisons are done with Dmen signed under the old CBA. So how much of this tough negotiation is driven by the agent trying to set a new high for Dmen and who better to do it than with PK?

I personally agree $8M is the most I would go for as per on ice performance only. What he brings to the team outside the ice rink should be irrelevant and may have to find other incentives for him other than higher salary. Sorry if I made it sound like everyone wants to pay him whatever he wants. I simply meant to comment on those taking that position.

Good morning all, I read HIO often, quite entertaining way to kill some time but never really posted. Somehow felt compelled to post with this PK situation. It reminds me of those protesting in front of the Bell Center to have the team resign Kovalev. Do I wish PK gets signed? Absolutely, the longer the contract the better. Should it be at any price? Definitely not. I am a fan of the team first and foremost and I will cheer for anyone who wears the bleu, blanc, rouge. Should it come down that PK gets traded, based on the value everyone seems to be giving him, the return would be great. I think people reaction is mainly due to his personality, so anything the team does to and with him is always taken as an insult to PK. Anything PK does gets extreme opposite reactions, let it be a hit on the ice or an error on the ice. As for those complaining about MB. Yes, PK is a great financial value to this team outside the hockey rink, but that is Geoff Molson's problem not MB's, maybe Molson can guaranteed him a well paid job after his career. MB's job is to put a team on the ice within the rules of the salary cap. There is the argument that the cap will go up by a gazillion percentage in a few years. Well, that inflation will also apply to Gallagher, Galchenyuk and later on to Beaulieu and Tinordi. So I personally believe that IT would be irresponsible to give PK "whatever he wants". How much should PK be signed for? I have no idea. Let it be $7M or $12M, that's for MB and PK to work out or not (gets traded). At the end of the day, we survived quite well without re-signing Kovalev and come every September/October will be Go Habs Go, preferably with PK for the next 8 years or anyone else wearing the bleu, blanc, rouge. OK, hopefully I made some sense on what I typed. Now back to hibernation and will re-post in 8 years when fans will go up in arms when the team would not be giving PK a contract extension. cheers

ah... that makes more sense. I just saw the link and shared it. Should have doubted Daily Show would talk about the Bruins or hockey!
