I think his desire to win a cup may now be second to his desire to settle down and prepare for life after hockey (ie. his business), and I'm guessing that the Kings and Coyotes are the only teams that he'll ever play for again. He'll probably take a paycut to play for either, so I don't think that it'll be too hard for the Kings to convince him to stay for a reasonable amount; they'll only be bidding against the Coyotes. That's what I think, anyways. Here's hoping that JR continues to be a good player, has reasonable salary demands and that the Kings don't stiff him; he might just end up retiring a King (though the safe bet is that they will eventually stiff him and he'll flee to Phoenix, but I don't want to sound pessimistic ).
