From TSN
Souray said he received other three-year offers, but chose the Ducks for their roster and their proximity to his family.
Considering the amount of time in between the first Souray to ANA rumor to the actual signing I'm guessing BM was getting the OK by Ducks players and trying to negotiate the contract. I think the Ducks added either more $ or added another yr (probably originally wanted 2 yr deal) to push things in our favor.

Now if only we can relocate Weber's fam before next summer.....
