Stop reading stuff into what is a business negotiation. If a couple a years from now it turns out he hurt himself and Avs in these negotiations, you might make the case for him screwing up.

Thank you.

By the way, I never stated that any of those things were actually FACTS or that I believed them but that I was putting it all up to QUESTION.

These are the questions I'm now asking myself about this player since he's the only NHLer to try and leverage a KHL contract against a potential NHL one. I'm not sure it's as far fetched as some of you seem to believe.

The facts are this: the longer this goes, the better the chances are that this won't end well for his future, long-term in Colorado.
