Anyone recall what the issue he had with Phoenix at the start of the year was about?

Edit: from wikipedia

After becoming a restricted free agent on July 1, 2011, failed contract negotiations with the Coyotes resulted in Turris holding out for the start of the 2011–12 season. With Turris absent from Phoenix's training camp, ESPN reported in September 2011 that Turris had requested a US$3–4 million salary. His demands caused speculation in the media that he wanted to be traded from the team.[8] By late-October, a month into the season, Turris' agent, Kurt Overhardt, confirmed that the player had requested a trade, asserting that contract negotiations had "never been about money".[9] Turris agreed to a two-year, $2.8 million contract with the Coyotes on November 22, 2011.
At least he is signed for another season. Don't think he is a 3-4 million dollar player yet, but has the potential to be worth more. Wonder what the hold out was about if according to his agent "it was never about the money" was indeed fact.
