The Ottawa Senators’ latest offer of a four-year contract to defenceman Jared Cowen is more than fair assistant general manager Tim Murray said Friday and he can’t see the team moving far off of it.

“It’s been a long process I think we started talking on July 5 and we exchanged proposals this past week I think two each and we’re still apart” Murray said during a break from watching the Senators skate at the Bell Sensplex.

“Our last proposal is we think very competitive very fair. More than fair. As I told his agent when I look at the comparables and that that the number they’re asking for I can’t find anybody. And I understand that you have to add intangibles and all that into a proposal but even with that we think that ours is way beyond any statistical comparables.
