Yes, the net income is different but it would fly in the face of him saying he wanted to play in the NHL. The difference is chump change compared to the earnings damage he did by going back a second time. He wanted a multi-year deal and wasn't willing to prove himself over the course of an entire season, even while being penciled in with Pitkanen, so he could potentially cash in once his arbitration rights kicked in.
