Wasn't it something like 5 yrs and Datsyuk money? I think he wasn't saying he should get more, but wanted to be sure he liked it here if he did take a 'hometown' discount. It also doesn't seem like Kenny was ready to do the 12 yr deals last year. I think one thing that was restraining him a bit was the tagging issue too, and knowing he'd have Z and Franzen coming up for renewal.
