He talked in depth in that interview in the link above how he had to decide what he wanted to do, and has said before he was very close to signing there. He was likely using it as leverage, but he was also really considering it.

That said, I'm sure we don't have to worry about him not coming back. He wants to be in the NHL and with the Avs.
