Clearly the players enjoy being here, and have a good relationship with Armstrong because they are signing these deals when they could probably milk the franchise for more if they really were unsatisfied. I think that's a big deal. The team is winning, the fans are supportive(top 10 in attendance 4 straight years) and there is loads of character in the locker room. The only problem I can see is coming from offer sheets on Pietrangelo or, to a lesser extent, Shattenkirk. That could really screw up the finances of the team if they have to pay some monster contract. Other than that, the players seem happy, coaches are happy, and I can't really think of a player that has a giant ego on the entire team.

That's basically my point.
