“Until I’m proven wrong, my guess is, it comes in around the Pettersson, Barzal, three times $7 million-ish area.
I just don’t think they have the ability to do this deal for term. If they couldn’t do Oettinger for term, then they certainly can’t do Robertson for term, I don’t think. Unless there is another move coming there that I don’t see right now, I wouldn’t expect Robertson right now for term.
My guess is we’re right around the three – seven-ish range (three years at $7 million-ish).”
“When you look at there cap space, this is going to put them up against it no matter what happens here. But I think if you go any higher than , you’re going to have to move a body.

“That’s five years.”
“That would have to be, absolutely.”

“I think that is going to come in around three times seven. My guess.”
