I think it's very logical that he'd want a long-term deal there, but nowhere else, because he wouldn't want to uproot his family.

Signing a short-term deal in the East would give him a shot at a Cup and some cash without relocating his brood.
It's much more logical that he takes a long-term deal with the Kings/Ducks/Sharks and maximizes his earning power while still staying close since he's not exactly gonna have this kind of income for the next 30 years.
