Whats the difference between playing the last 4 months somewhere else when you are likely going to leave this summer anyways. And if you do love this organization and want to come back then why not help the team out by giving them some assets, playing in a stretch run, and then signing back in the offseason. If this wasnt the last year of an expiring deal then i would agree that he should do whatever he is most comfortable with. And i am a father so im well aware of family coming first. But it is a dbag move to repeatedly say how much you love an organization and then when you have the chance to help their future you tie their hands, when all you had to do was leave for 4 months to play meaningful hockey before becoming a UFA and choosing your own situation.
Doug Weight really helped out the Blues the year he came here. They ended up getting Patrick Berglund and others out of a rental deal and then Doug signed right back with them. Tcachuk has done the same thing for the Blues. That is what guys do when they truly love an organization.
