I honestly think its part agent-games / bringing in offers from Philly and Chicago to put pressure on Pittsburgh and Detroit to up their offer AND i think its that he doesn't want to seem like hes taking the decision lightly. Maybe he is going to Pittsburgh or Detroit, but they are offering less money then New Jersey. How does he justify this? Taking less and playing for a rival.. not going to endear himself with his former teammates that way. Especially after Brodeur resigned and then called him. That was probably the call that made everything slow down. So he has to drag it out and make it appear like hes talked with his family and came to this decision the right way.
