Crawling back to the wings is not an accurate statement at all.
He had no choice but to play for Detroit if he wanted back in the NHL due to the Arb. Award. The Wings owed his rights.
As a young man, you have a choice. You can play the next 2 years here for 5 million? OR play the next 2 years in your home country for 10 million?
Even if he only played one year back home, he still made as much there in that one year than the Wings were going to pay him over two years here.
I do not begrudge him that. I applaued him for it. It was a smart move for him.
