    upon further review I can't tell if they are asking for each or total. Anyone?

    WOW! It's just amazing that at this cap era, players can get deals like these. They deserve it, but wow.

    Fortunately we only have one player who could dare ask for 10% of the cap or more on his deal. Everyone else on the team is locked up well below that. Personally I don't think it's going to be a bitter one. They seemed to have an understanding last time. Doughty is well staggered to offset the blow as the only other big ticket.

    I dunno about that. They all talk about "Keeping the group together" and the reality is that come next summer, when he asks that, Lombardi's response could be "Well, then I can't keep Stoll & Williams".

    $12M per, $24M for the pair. That's like a 3rd of your cap in 2 players, at least until it goes up some. I just don't see how that pencils.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Yeah I think I said in the shoutbox something about 30-33% of the cap on 2 players? Thats an amazing amount. If they're floating those numbers though.....

    yeah I think Kopitar will ultimately sign for something semi-reasonable. I still don't think both Stoll AND Williams will be on the team in a year; Lombardi will likely have to choose.

    I can't imagine they will get anywhere near 12 million each a year, but doesn't hurt to ask for it, and apparently ask for it via the media.

    Truth be told, you start high, and end up negotiating to the figure you thought was reasonable in the first place. Wouldn't be shocked if they hit ten million each, but in this salary cap era, it is just insanity to have that much tied up in two players. Even those two players. Without a supporting cast, and a good one, they won't win anything anytime soon.

    I'm glad I'm not a Chicago fan.
