The primary concern is that he earns his $37 and then decides to take his talents to Stuttgart, in a manner of speaking. In other words, he decides he's had enough of America and decides to go home to finish his career/earn more money in Europe. It sounds like the Sabres would get caught in the recapture provision net even under those circumstances as the provision's scheme seems punitive in nature, even where a player walks away from an existing deal while an NHL club is willing to employ him.
