Holland has shown a history of paying for potential (See: Kronwall, Filpulla) with hopes that the player grows into the contract. This is a fact.
Obviously the Holland haters are hoping that Kenny offered him 100 dollars/year so that they can be even angrier at the man.
But the truth of the matter is, DD's agent is most likely asking for 4M/per.
Like I said, with Holland's mostly spotless history of dealing with RFAs, ypu have to think that the friction is coming from the DeKeyser camp.
You take a potshot at Holland haters but follow it with your own completely unfounded comment about Dekeyser asking for $4 mill a year.
Unless you have a source for that?
For all we know after the mistake he made with Kindl's contract, Holland could be playing it more conservatively with RFA D-men.
The actual truth of the matter is we have no idea what's going on with Dekeyser's contract negotiations. It's between Holland and his agent.
What I do know is that Dekeyser has quickly become a crucial part of the Wings defense and I sure hope they get him signed ASAP.
