I know he's not a young man, but you have to put some responsibility on him because he has a choice. He's just too much of a wuss to part with the ungodly amount of money. That's his CHOICE. If he walked away from the money, he'd have plenty of suitors: Boston, Colorado, Carolina, Chicago, NYI, etc. and everyone here would have to respect the ******* out of him, cause it would be a ballsy move and a statement about his self-worth. But he doubts himself. And he's too attached to the money.

The Wings certainly aren't a victim, but neither's Joseph. The circumstance was unique, and the better goalie's playing. Joseph had a whole year to prove himself as better than Hasek (not an easy task), but he still has the power over his own career. He can take it back anytime he wants. He's "ruining" his own career. At least the Wings are paying him (their part of the bargain).
