I don't recall what Sarge's previous contracts were at, but considering his scoring and long tenure with the Caps, I imagine he didn't play for peanuts at the end of that those contracts. Add the 25 million over the past 5 years, and he cannot reasonably be wanting for dough.
Beyond that, which teams that could be interesting to him next season actually has a need for an ageing number1 - and the means to price him away from Pittsburgh, unless it is a Russian no-tax team?
