Though it's significantly more complex than this, even using basic tax calculators proves that he'd actually make more annually playing for NY @ $2M than he would in Montreal at $2.5M. Around $500k more in fact. Tax rates are
high here. After taxes he'll make around $5.6M with both contracts.
It's more about stability and obviously wanting to be near his gf who is a local celebrity (a minor one, but still) and recently obtained new work. Although if you consider the cost of living (real estate) he'll be able to afford a much nicer place in Montreal than he would have in NYC.
exactly like miamipuck said, he gets another year at 2.5 (or 2 after taxes or whatever calculations you did), which he might not get after a three year contract expired.
