As we speak, he’s still as free as a bird, and doesn’t seem to be anywhere near a contract with a new team.
But that doesn’t mean Tarasenko hasn’t received offers – quite the contrary.
So Tarasenko would have left a lot of money on the table, thinking he’d end up getting more.
In the end, it looks like it’s coming back to haunt Tarasenko, whose only real option right now seems to be a one-year contract.
This may have been overlooked by the Tarasenko camp when he (potentially) turned down offers of $5.5-6M per year thinking he’d get more.
In short, Tarasenko finds himself in a rather difficult situation where he can’t go back and accept one of these big offers.
He’ll probably have to settle for a one-year contract worth around $4 million.
