You can laugh all you want to, but who are we to judge a guy for spending his off season where he spent the rest of his life before coming here? His job is to show up to camp in shape, and live up to his expectations on the ice. Why are we grasping for reasons to be pissed off all summer? It seems like we've had enough legitimate ones without piling on. Maybe being around to help out with his wedding is a silly reason. I don't know. I've never planned one. But I'd rather give someone the benefit of the doubt for doing what he wants to do with his personal time than try to paint him as a selfish person for doing exactly what most of us would do.

For Klein, anything between $3m and $3.5m is reasonable. Although, the only thing we have to base those numbers off of is the cap over the most recent seasons. If a new CBA reduces the cap salaries will be rolled back, and $3.5m looks like more money all of the sudden. I'm not saying you don't still do it to keep him, just throwing it out there.
