This is just a repetition of your prior assertion.  What is that assertion based on?  Just your gut feel?  Any source?  Anything?

  came out on news sources i believe  2 weeks before trade deadline and some time in January

Im saying you could have gotten him cheaper then 9m but they paid free agency price 

Here is the  The article that they started negotiating

They should have had this deal done but they waited

No, no.  I totally agree with you that the Sabres and Skinner were negotiating during the course of the season.  That I remember.

What I don’t think exists is any evidence that the Sabres could have signed him earlier for cheaper, and specifically for $7M.  I don’t know where you got that from.

I believe they paid UFA price beacuse they waited to long 

I can almost promise you guys probably had 7m or 8 during the season when "negotiating " the contract in January

You said there were reports of a lower price, $7M, earlier in the season/negotiating process.  I don’t think there are any reports of that.

If you have a hunch that is the case, that’s fine, I’m not to argue about your gut feeling.  However, it doesn’t really carry any weight with me.  Not like an actual report from any reputable media source would.  If you have that, I’d love to see it.

EDIT:  Also, what’s an almost promise worth?  Ask my ex-girlfriends.

That’s fine, but don’t say there were news reports that he would’ve taken $7MM if there were no such reports.

FYI: I remember hearing $7M getting kicked around in the rumour mill.  I do not recall anything from any major media or otherwise quotable source.
