Not to mention he would have more freedoms to go after another big contract a year earlier and not have to deal with relocating to a new city.

That 5 year deal offers much less security
Why did the Wings offer him a 5 year deal and then remove it from the table, and then not offer five years again? Money clearly wasn't the issue. Why not offer the same $40m over 5 years, the way Anaheim did?
