He's not from there, he's from Wisconsin. He actually took a lot of heat in Madison for going to play for Minnesota as they were the hated rivals. Think of it like a French-Canadian from Montreal choosing to sign with the Leafs over the Canadiens when he is a UFA.

Phil will sign where the money is the most. It's that simple and there is no reason to suggest that Toronto wouldn't be that team.
