It may not at all. Then again, maybe his buddy Kovalchuk gets into his ear (you know they'd have a spot for him). He worships Datsyuk, and you know that organization and that coach would love to have him. Kulemin is one of his best friends, and Toronto always needs a center. I think he'll resign. I;m almost 100% sure of it. But, the fact that I'm no longer 100% sure worries me. Money isn't the thing, but he clearly had too much fun playing in the KHL, for a coach like Maurice (defensive style, used him all facets like a horse) and with his buddies, to think that there's no way he'd NEVER leave in a year and a half (for another team in the NHL).
If history's any clue, KIRK buddy, nothing will stop you from fretting about Geno re-signing until it actually happens.
