To be fair, his girl lives there along with his family, and this summer in particular he has a wedding to plan. Not to mention I'd want to be as far away from what could be contentious contract negotiations as I could be, too. If I'm going to be playing for a team for the rest of my career I don't want to be in the middle of all of that and potentially ruin relationships (especially after last summer). Also, a lot of guys go home during the off season.

I think Klein sticks around. He has been under the radar playing behind Weber and Suter. The only time he's really stuck out to the hockey world was during the playoffs this past year. If he has a great year and signs a short term contract here I think we start worrying about him bolting for the FA market.
