Oh, I agree on the money thing, but I was talking sort of about two goals... Financial security being one, but he also left Pittsburgh (where he claimed he enjoyed his time, and the team) for Detroit, for less money, all to win a championship. Plus he had a good season regardless of what he didn't do in the finals.
I didn't read if Detroit made any offers to him or not (anyone?), but I figured he maybe would've looked at other team's offers based on their readiness to win the cup in the next 2 to 3 years. Not that Chicago couldn't, they got to the finals... I just don't know where they would rank in anyone's mind to make it to the cup in the next 2 or 3 years or so.
I think he's got a good set up for sure... I thought maybe Washington was going to make a play for him, or Los Angeles.
He's also moving to a good city too, not just a good young team, so I suppose that's a factor as well... If you're planning to end there ultimately, and maybe stay. I loved it when I've been there.
I just sort of thought he'd pick another team. I really thought Washington was going to make a major play for him. Or the Rangers since they make a play for everyone it seems.
