So, this was the report from the Ducks on Monday, Jun. 24:

In the article, Bob Murray described the negotiations between the Ducks and Lovejoy's reps were really far apart - like Grand Canyon far apart.

WAIT. WHAT?! Then the numbers came out.

And of course, a bit later from the Ducks:

What a difference a couple days makes? I know there are a lot of happy Ducks fans out there; consider me one of them. I think he has been given the perfect amount of money and length of contract for his contribution the prior season.

Now I know what most of us are thinking - buyouts. As of Saturday/Sunday...

Just give it a couple more days and we'll find out the truth. (Takes off tinfoil hat).
