Mezaros development?? Maybe...

An interesting rumor has come to life on the internet.

Apparently, the offer Mezaros received from the KHL was for more than most originally figured. Initially it was thought to be for $3.5M for a 3 yr minimum term; however, late yesterday afternoon, a rumour surfaced where this 'informant' claimed that the figure is actually in the $5M range, which may explain why Mezaros is taking his time deciding between that and Murray's offer of approximately $2.2M - $2.8M. Oh, it gets better...

He also goes on to say that the other reason there is a hold-up is because Mezie's agent has been notified that he may be a part of a package deal to have his rights moved to a team that's willing to sign him for $4M over a few years, i.e. 3-5; and that a highly sought-after Sniper will be coming back Ottawa's way to play alongside Alfie.

Now, I've read this over and over and discussed with a few friends and fans and it just seems a little odd to say the least, but as promised, when I hear or read something, I'll throw it out there for others to see and discuss. I cannot vouch for this informant's credibility, but he certainly has got a few fans all riled up on other sites and forums. Maybe there's something to this, maybe not, I suppose time will tell. Needless to say, my opinion has ALWAYS been, no matter how good or how much potential Mezie has or could have, if he wants $$ that both Murray and some Sens fans feel he hasn't earned yet, well, as they say in Montreal: "SALUT BYE!!"

Oh, a few of my rabid hockey fans and colleagues have begun a new venture (Cap 'n' Clutch, Heater 504, Jamvan and myself) and we would all like you to come and check it out.

I know for fact Mez will not be going to Russia, take that for what it is, but I have talked to someone close to him several times and it's not an option to him. He does not want to play in Russia and ruin his NHL career. Mark that down, Meszaros is going no-where, but that's not to say he won't sit out.

I agree, I don't think Mezie is going anywhere. Now, should he or his rights be traded, I will be just as surprised as the next guy, but I will put my money on him sitting out, probably the entire season once he sees Murray moving on without him.
