"Anderson, who turned down $7.5 million over two years with the Colorado Avalanche, was offered two years at $4 million per season by the Sens."
Thats really all you need to know. Not much of a raise from the Av's offer, but maybe by now he will realize that he's not going to get anything better. I wonder how he will respond. Perhaps he will turn it down and ask for more years at a lesser amount. More likely, now that the Sens have put it out into public, he will accept it. Or, hell, he may go on and test Free Agency. Lets see how far that gets him.
