The teams holds most if not all the cards dealing with RFA's. UFA sees the player holding all the cards and is not a guarantee of resigning.

Hemsky, with all his baggage going to a contender would most likely view him as a pure rental. Hemsky would most likely go to the team flashing the best contract come July 1st.

GM's laughed at it last year, what makes him so much more intriguing this year to warrant that kind of over payment?

Holland isn't that dumb.
