The club has reportedly tabled a six or seven year deal that would pay the 21-year-old an annual average of $6 million per season, but since then the Pastrnak camp has gone quiet.
"We haven’t really got a response on what they’re looking for," Bruins president Cam Neely said, according to Joe McDonald of the Boston Sports Journal. "Until we really see what they’re thinking, and what they’re looking for then we can start the dialogue."
Neely is confident that both sides will be able to work out an agreement, but insists that until they get a response there is no sense coming down from their initial offer.
"An offer was made, but then there really wasn’t much dialogue after that, so it’s kind of pointless for us to still negotiate against ourselves," Neely said. "But, we feel confident we can get something done. David's expressed he loves it here and wants to play here and we want to sign him. We want him here for as long as it makes sense for us."
Neely did note that on Thursday Pastrnak's agent J.P. Barry reached out to general manager Don Sweeney suggesting that both sides could continue talks on Friday.
Last season Pastrnak smashed his previous career-highs, tallying 34 goals and 70 points - finishing tied for 10th in the league for goals.
