There isn't one shred of me that doesn't think that I'm going to be at some BBQ or something on Saturday and checking my phone every 30 seconds for an update.

I'm sure this will drag out right down to the wire.

He's arrogant......its written all over him.
- kindlyrick

Wrong. He's quirky and outspoken by hockey standards. But he's not arrogant. Big difference.

I don't totally disagree, but he's also got a huge decision to make that's going to affect the next 7-8 years of his life and could be worth $90M-$100M. Wouldn't be surprised if he used up all his available time to go back and revisit everything about his decision.

Hes the very definition of arrogance. Goalie's are quirky, Ho Sang is just a d bag. Im shocked that Director of Player development (the great) Eric Cairns, has done such a poor job with "the other" #66.

I mean, he's basically gonna get a similar number, with similar term anywhere he signs. I dont get the big production here. The ownership licked his bum forwards and backwards and cleaned house, they added the extra games at the coli, new arena in belmont, etc etc etc I dont really see any other team, except maybe Tampa, looking to sign him who's really going to give him a better shot at the cup than the isles during the duration of his contract. To me its a simple decision.

What are you talking about??? I've watched lots of interviews with the kid. In no way, does he come off as arrogant. He's a bit of an odd duck, sure. Most hockey players are plain vanilla; think John Tavares, who is the definition of boring in any interview. But being odd doesn't make a person arrogant.

Lets just agree to disagree........i'll leave you with this. There's a reason every team passed on a kid who was a top 10 talent. Not Garth though......he knew better than 29 other GMs did.

This is unacceptable. Part of cpt's sales pitch to keep me here was that you would be around to cut and paste. If not, then I will have alternative but to declare my free agency and listen to other offers.

OK, fair enough. I'll just nitpick and say Garth moved up a few spots to draft him. He was drafted 28th, so a couple of teams didn't have a shot at him.

It's not about the money. He wants to play for someone with a plan that he believes will get him to a Cup. He has a 77pg binder with notes and info on all the teams he thought could be a potential fit. (Source). He wants to see the long-term plans and he's looking at these organizations from top-to-bottom. The money is the easy part.

He's probably going to take it right down to the wire, I wouldn't be surprised if he went over his binder/meeting notes/etc... multiple times after his meetings are done.
