Drysdale should have asked for either more money or less term (IMO 2 years, 3.25 mil) and Anaheim shouldn’t have taken this long to sign him. They had the money to sign him before training camp and pre-season. And they had the money to sign him to this deal — or a better one — for a good long while.
Obviously, this is all my opinion. But in my opinion, this is the sort of situation that torpedoes relationships.</div></div>
That's why the deal took so long to get done. But, he had no leverage other than holding out after missing almost an entire season. Big W for the Ducks here. Zegras, on the other hand, should've been locked up long term, imo.As far as relationships go, that's exactly why players have agents. Nylander held out for half a season and he didn't seem to have damaged relationships. But, I. guess you. never know what happens behind closed doors.
