‘”They have a team policy not to negotiate with players during the season. They didn’t want to mess with any chemistry. We have four guys that will be unrestricted free agents (also Mike Grier, Teppo Numminen and Rory Fitzpatrick). I don’t disagree with their decision because if they were working on one guy’s deal and not someone else’s, it could break the chemistry that we have. Things are going so well, so I don’t fault them for doing that.”‘
