This article from Francis says they're about 1.5 million apart. If that's the case, pay the man if he's gonna take max term. He's the future and this team isn't sniffing the playoffs without him.

Negotiations are on hold until World Cup is over.

Also... Eric Francis

It's most likely due to salary structure. My guess is Gaudreau wants more in salary bonus especially during potential lockout years. Flames probably don't want to pay him if there's a work stoppage.

Finally. Would have preferred 7-8 years but that's a nice deal.

That's alright. Glad it's not much more than Money.

As many others have said here and elsewhere would have loved 7-8 years, but that would have raised the AAV too high for the cap. I imagine Treliving did the numbers many different ways, and going longer than 6 wouldn't make too much sense for Johnny either. He'll get paid again in 5 if he wants to stay, or more likely he'll get paid massively as a UFA in 6.

Either way, this is our window. The Johnny window. Let's see how we do the first 10-20 games this season, I'm very curious.
