<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>F50marco</b></div><div>Like I said, If you started with an offer that insulting, I'd take it personally and not deal with at all going forward. If I was desperate to make the deal maybe I would be a little more understanding but Im not and just because you've convinced yourself of my supposed desperation, doesn't make it true. Reality is I am not worried at all. In fact Buff's retirement, although would suck, would solve a lot of issues cap wise for my team sooo....
So you know what I have a counter, Laine for Domi, Gallagher, Kotkaniemi, Poehling, Suzuki, Mete, 2020 1st, 2021 1st and the twenty minutes or so i lost having to explain to you the nuance of negotiation.</div></div>
okay thanks! LOL it is finally not raining here in BC, no I am not from BC, but I am here right now, so I will go out and enjoy the beautiful day! sorry about your lost 20 minutes. Hey, you could have been playing a video game! LOL
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>F50marco</b></div><div>Once again. If that is your pitch to me as a GM, I would laugh at your at your phone call and tell you Im not going to do business with you until you come to your senses. Your clearly not taking my time seriously.
Its NOT what you believe. Its what you can convince the other side of (especially if they agree to a certain extent). You haven't convinced me of anything logical. Your simply telling me what to believe and if it made half sense, i;d play along. This is so far from reality that it would slightly offend another GM.</div></div>
When negotiations begin they actually often begin this way and then you let the other GM sit on it or think about it, but you also tell him prior to getting off the phone, hey this is my starting point, call me with another offer and I will listen. It is rare, you call someone and give them your best offer right away. It is like buying a house, you offer low and wait for counter offer. They often laugh, like some are doing on here but as time passes and they need the house sold, they often call back with a counter offer.
This is my entry level opening offer, the JETS are in a very bad spot to be able to sign 2 goal scorers that are both RFA's and wanting big contracts. Plus Connor had more goals than Laine and a much better WAR.
