Shame for Mac, but this is good news for the Sens. First, it's better to know for sure than have things to in the air. Second, 80% of his salary is covered by insurance so the tram has something like $1.9M that they budgeted but did not spend. That was the figure I hearda sorry while back. Now that they know he will miss the whole season that number will go a lot higher. It's not 80% of the full $4.65M because I think only LTIR portion is covered but it will be well north of $3M. That kind of scratch can get you quite a large upgrade St the deadline. Sure, we would have to give something up, but at least we can afford it.
Also, Dorion saying the asking price is ridiculous is simply negotiating via media.
