Welcome to the real world. When you're a career 0.45 PPG guy coming off your ELC asking for a lot of money the employer will object and point to reasons why you shouldn't make $5M/year or whatever. It's their job, just as it is O'Reilly's agents job to completely ignore the first two years of his NHL career and claim he should get paid purely from the third.

It's business. But by the way you write about it, it seems it's mostly emotional for him. That makes him silly and his agent unprofessional. His agent knows it's just business, so why does he let his client get all sulky?
