    Canucks hand Scatchard 'take it or leave it offer

     KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) -- Length of contract and not money is keeping Vancouver Canucks centre Dave Scatchard away from his teammates and their 1999 training camp.
     The 23-year-old forward will be eligible for salary arbitration in two years and his agent, Seattle-based Carlos Sosa, is attempting to protect that right by pushing for a shorter term. The Canucks apparently won't move off a three-year proposal.
     "Term is the primary concern, it is the issue," Sosa told the Vancouver Sun after Canucks negotiator Dave Nonis sent Scatchard a 'take-it-or-leave-it' final offer. "I think we're within range on money."
     Neither Sosa nor Nonis would discuss figures, but it's believed the dollars are in the $600,000-$700,000 range.
     Nonis feels Sosa will be doing a disservice to his client by not accepting and can't comprehend why Scatchard remains out.
     "I understand Adrian Aucoin's position and I understand Ed Jovanovski's position," Nonis said, referring to his two other unsigned players. "I don't agree with them, but I understand it. Dave Scatchard's position I don't understand. He has two years experience in the league and he should be here playing and trying to make our team.
     "I think he's getting terrible advice. I think the only person or people who have gotten worse advice are the baseball umpires."
