His contract is awesome for him. No incentives to care either way. No risk whatsoever. No way he restructures. He'll never be that unhappy. The Caps are stuck with him. He doesn't care that much about being on a winning team. Not enough to take less money.
You never know. What would you rather do if you were already rich:

Take 21 million dollars and perhaps a bit more to win, or take 55 million dollars to lose forever and ever.
