That contract extension may be "far from done," reported Darren Dreger on TSN's "Insider Trading" on Tuesday.
"Yes, there are components to this extension that have been agreed to, but there are also a number of pieces that they haven't signed off on - to the point, I'm told now, that it's almost at an impasse," Dreger said. "There's a lot of work that needs to be done between Dean Lombardi and the agent, Pat Brisson."
It was previously reported that both parties were closing in on an eight-year extension, worth approximately $9.75 million per year.
The 28-year-old has 12 goals and 23 assists in 42 games this season.
