It appears the minor stand-off between the Canucks and soon to be unrestricted free agent Taylor Pyatt may actually be coming to an end. In a good way for both sides.
TSN.ca is reporting that the Canucks who offered $1.2 million per have loosend their stance a litte, meanwhile Pyatt has also come back the other way from his previous demand of about $1.5 - 1.6 million.
Pyatt had career numbers last season while spending most of the season on the top line with the Sedin twins Daniel and Henrik. During the Canucks post-season run Pyatt appeared non-existent at times and will be expected to increase his roll as he continues to progress as a legitimate NHLer.
It also appears that unlike Anson Carter of the 2005-2006 Sedin benefactor fame, Taylor Pyatt is in full understanding that the Sedins made him successful as much as he added a dynamic to their game. Pyatt will get his due, he succeded last season while playing top line minutes and not having huge expectations. Let's take a little pay raise and see if we can enjoy some continued success.
