It really makes the guy look bad. So it doesn't work out right away, so he gives up and goes for the bigger contract at the moment.

At least that's what it seems like to me. Or does anyone know if there is more to it?
Maybe he's a "team first" guy. Playing in Germany will give him opportunity to play all the friendlies and tournaments German national team takes part of (with Switzerland, Slovakia, etc.) and will allow him to prepare with the core of the team one month before the world championship starts. I mean look how far Germany got with a team play, why not further next year.

Maybe he had to choose whether to sit most of the next season (or to get worn out in AHL) or play first line in Cologne, for better money too. Easy choice, if you ask me.
