Frank!!!  Respectfully, that's private and none of your business!

How much variation could there possibly be?

Are they looking for a package that grows with time and hands on development? Or something with a more immediate showing to placate their fanbase?

What other packages are in play that might entice the Sabres to grab a different offer?

Yeah, that's kind of why I was asking you.

You're good at estimating the size/extent of packages and what they would bring in different scenarios.

Nik:

I'd be surprised if Kakko wasn't involved as sort of the main young player. Then maybe a 1st and a 2nd and maybe another of NYR's better prospects like Schneider and I think that's about as well as Buffalo could hope to do.

I think it just comes down to fit; not just strictly the package size or whatever. Are you moving in the same direction in life and is there alignment with your values? The main thrust of it will centre on that general direction. There's a big commitment to be made. Everyone has to put in the work to ensure there is some measure of satisfaction for everyone involved.

I think the Sabres are looking for growth potential, even though historically their focus has been on expecting immediate results. Frankly they're just not good at coaxing growth from their prospects. Ristolainen, for example, is pretty much all down years.

I suppose, but sometimes you just have to grind it out and see what comes out in the end.

So, basically, the Panthers are paying a Quarterback at the University of Miami to promote their team and go to some games.
