I mentioned this yesterday and IMO this is the only silver lining of this whole rumor nonsense. It may be the TERM and not the money he doesn't accept, but being that he's getting married he's not dealing with it until Monday maybe. He may feel with the new CBA and other factors that he doesn't want a long term deal right now, but MIGHT want to give it a couple more goes with the Pens. Maybe a 2-3 year deal. Especially if age of FA gets toyed with in new CBA.
