That's true, but he risked the new CBA limiting these long term, bonus driven contracts. This gave him the opportunity to play for either a team that will go the distance to win the cup, or go back to the team he is used to.

This is the exact kind of deal he wanted and Nashville was not willing to give it for the past two seasons. Now Nashville is backed into a corner.
