there is more to it than money. A trade off in going to NY or tornoto is the ad/marketing deals that can be gotten for players.
Another factor would be quality of the team he is with. does he want more money or does he want to get the cup? That is a legit tradeoff there.
Also remember---players know with the shrunk cap they cant get the money they would have gotten before without destroying the team. You cant pay a sigle player $10M/yr...it will handcuff a team.
the salaries of the players will go down in UFA signings next season.
