Not really. Holding out for 2 seasons just to get to UFA status just screams that he could be a poisonous player to deal with like a Radulov (fair or unfair holding out for that long makes a player look very bad). After that he still wouldn't get the big deal he is looking for. Something more like a 1 year 3m deal, and if he did well possibly a long extension. That is a lot of risk to take, just to get a better deal. The only way he wouldn't lose a bunch of money on that deal is if he played in the KHL, which might further sour his stock.
