C'mon. If teams really thought there was a 27 y/o, physical, 25 goal scoring winger on the UFA market, he would have been locked up on day one.

There are two scenarios here:

1. AK is looking for absurd money.

2. GM's don't think he's that player and the cons outweigh the pros by enough of a margin to keep them away.

He's a very talented player, but he has rocks in his head. It's a little late in the game for GM's to be hoping they can turn him around. If he hasn't matured by age 27, the likelihood of him doing so is slim-to-none.
