also i don't want to match that 12m x 7 offer for the Devils.

That's a bit too much for Johnny

Agreed.

Maybe his thing about family meant making as much money as possible 

I have to admit, he had us going.  Here we are thinking it's a Neids situation who left money on the table to go play somewhere else when it's really a Kovy situation who used the Kings to drive up his price in the 2010 offseason.

So is he full of sh!t about being closer to his family in NJ or about not being about the money?

Dude he's the top UFA in the last few years. Can't blame the agent and him for trying to get the most money / close to home. This makes total sense from a bargaining perspective

Have any of you tried to get through Canada lately with regards to COVID? It's a fvcking nightmare. 

Maybe "closer to home" most importantly means "the United States." That doesn't make him "full of sh!t". 

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

It's a hell of a commute from Columbus to south jersey.

You guys are good with 7x10.5 but not 7x12? Who gives a crap about the extra 1.5 per year?! Aren't the Devils paying Kuokkonen that much money to not play for them? 

cause that extra 1.5m per year may very well be what makes a guy like Mercer, Sharangovich, etc etc etc walk in a few years cause we just can't match another offer

Agreed, still feel like we have other pieces to add long term to put us over the top. Got to keep that space.

Agreed. What are you saving that 1.5 for? Another bottom 6 forward who will be shopped for a pick at the deadline?

Could be just that they are using CBJ to try to increase the NJD or NYI deals. 

That's fine.  However, it does rub me the wrong way when he turns down a similar offer to what Columbus had by Calgary and claims it is not about the money.

I mean, no. There aren't a whole lot of teams who have a need for a top-line wing that can afford to pay him $10+ for 7 years. 

Obviously every team is an exaggeration but the point still stands. Plenty more teams would be involved if they believed he didn't wanna go home and was open to others. That's all.

Johnny already left an 84million contract on the table in Calgary.

If he wants to be as close as possible while getting the most money... it's in NJ.

But the Islanders are bidding lower than NJ (according to reports) so it's not going to drive Fitz offer up... getting another team bidding higher will do that though.
