    According to the Ottawa Sun:

    "The Senators were hoping to have a deal in place with White before they faced the Bruins at the TD Garden Tuesday night so he could attend the game with his family. White doesn’t want to return to school next season so both sides are trying to find common ground."

    That's not surprising. He played like he didn't want to be here this year. Maybe a bit harsh but he did not elevate his game.

    I don't see White's situation at BC being too much different than it was this season. It might be even harder for White to get offense going without RFitz and Cango. Does he want to play another year where so many games are a grind for him? Or does he want to take his signing bonus and make 90K learning the Pro game in the AHL next year? I think he'd already be signed if Ottawa would let him burn the first year of his ELC instead of trying to get him to sign an ATO.

    He had a great World Junior Championship ... but except for the penalties he took, I thought White was pretty much invisible at the Garden last weekend.

    Seems like Ottawa doesn't want him to burn a year off his entry-level deal, true, but from what I've heard elsewhere White and his agent don't want him to play in the AHL.

    100% agree and you're not being harsh. Get someone in that wants to be here.

    But doesn't this all go back to how the program is being "sold?" Clearly at BU they are being told "This is your quickest and best path to the NHL." Don't know what they're telling them at BC, but that kind of goes counter to the "Get someone in that wants to be here argument." Do ANY of them really "want to be here" or is it just "this is how I can get a pro contract the quickest?" This is the dilemma that all schools face today. And it's like dominoes...once one school starts that type of "marketing," then the others have to follow suit if they want to attract the best players, or else to take the alternative approach and do what Merrimack and Lowell do...recruit guys that are "older" and are not hot prospects.

    Last year, he had much more talent around him and flourished. This year, not so much and he was not as productive. If he leaves, hopefully BC can fill his spot with a telented forward or defenseman.

    I believe that White would have the same problem in the AHL that he has had at BC and that is why he and his agent want him in the NHL. He has been a constant target of opposing players because of his skills and is almost always the recipient of cheap shots. That is where his penalties come in as he retaliates and gets caught. He needs to be playing where skill is more important and the AHL is full of goons.

    Re: White. From what I heard last off-season, he wanted to be in Ottawa but the feeling wasn't mutual. So I'm not remotely surprised that he still feels that way or that the Sens have acquiesced.

    I can't speak to how he played all year, he sure as hell played well enough whenever NU was on the other end of the ice, but this has been a long time coming.
