jedimaas Posted July 6, 2011 Report Share Posted July 6, 2011 According to HIO, they mentioned the amount that was offered, but not the length of the contract. Just speculation, but I feel he's also looking for a long term contract. Habs have been handing out these one year deals to all their returning players. Minus Markov, he's the only one who was offered more than one season. It's hard to guesstimate what arbitration will offer him (specially with his season being cut short), but I think you may be right. I'm thinking around 2.25-2.5 per season. We should find out soon enough. I also agree its probably a term thing. Gauthier seems to know 'value' of a player in terms of yearly contract but when a guy misses most of the season due to a knee injury/surgery, its tough to say "ok, here's a 5 year deal." On the flip side you'd likely get him for less per year than a 1 year deal and then another new contract. Hopefully they can get it done as i do believe both sides want it to work out.
