Also he's at that point in a player's career where he's going to look for more security with a long term contract (I'm expecting 5 years at least) especially if he ends up winning the SC. I doubt DT is ready to offer him that, especially with a large caphit.
I agree with you Soupy. He's likely going to be way to expensive. But he brings a lot to the table beyond scoring points and goals.
