<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>KMarner34</b></div><div>It just seems that in order for him to sign a long-term deal, he wants at least $8M. If not, he wants a bridge-deal and that's why the two sides are arguing.</div></div>

Really don't think the term or AAV is what is blocking the deal but most likely signing bonuses as usual. Melnyk doesn't want to give any of that but star players want a good chunk of their salary in s.b. because of the financial gains it brings. Recent example : look at Barkov contract.

There's a big difference between a 8 x 8 contract and a 8 x 8 contract with 90% in signing bonuses (like Barkov). Just the interest you make every year by receiving your money right away... It's also "Lockout proof" money

All the rest is speculation and rumors. I'm 99% certain this is the case as it's been with past star players.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Eli</b></div><div>Ottawa is too close to the floor to trade Holden and WSH is too close to the ceiling to take him.

Kempny and a 6th for Mete helps both teams, financially. Ottawa saves $200k in salary, and gets 1.3M further above the cap hit floor, allowing them flexibility to make other moves, like trading Holden somewhere for a pick. And by the deadline, if Kempny is playing well again, the Sens can keep him or trade him for another pick.</div></div>

I like these ideas. I'd rather keep Holden anyway (at least until the deadline), he's pretty solid if you don't overplay him. I'd like to keep Mete too.

The 2 D-men I want to see gone asap are Del Zotto (lol I know, never played a game for Ottawa) and Josh Brown
