He might have some sense of loyalty to the Habs, but really at that point he should sign with the team that gives him the best shot at the NHL (usually a struggling team with spots open).
He won't get any more money from other teams anyways, there's a cap on how much he can sign for. Maybe he'll do that, I doubt it though. And if he does good on him.
