Yep that's pretty good news... but let's face it we are all thinking about the Nash comments.. I really wonder what that first offer from Howsen was... I would love to know... I just can't see Howsen low-balling him that badly... I am guessing 5 years x 7.0 - 7.5M ...(Gaborik is 5 x 7.5yr.. Hossa $5.2 x 12yr)... IF nash is willing to take the same identical contract as Hossa I am all for it.. you think he's honestly thinking OVIE money ??

BTW here's the list of most expensive singings this UFA season..

Gaborik, Marian $37.5M 5 $7.5M
Bouwmeester, Jay $33.4M 5 $6.68M
Sedin, Henrik $30.5M 5 $6.1M
Sedin, Daniel $30.5M 5 $6.1M
Cammalleri, Mike $30M 5 $6M
Niedermayer, Scott $6M 1 $6M
Hossa, Marian $62.8M 12 $5.23M
Havlat, Martin $30M 6 $5M
Gionta, Brian $25M 5 $5M
Thomas, Tim $20M 4 $5M
Komisarek, Mike $22.50 5 $4.5M
Booth, David $25.5M 6 $4.25M
Antropov, Nik $16M 4 $4M

Thanks for those stats eplagge.. I'm gonna ammend those stats to the recent Nash post..

As I stated in the post.. it's really hard for me to draw a conclusion on Nash's intentions without knowing that offer..

I will say in general terms my feelings right now though if the follwoing:

Howson offer < 7.0 == Howson lowballed

Howson offer >= 7.0 == Nash wants out
