I think your avatar speaks to your "for sure" comment. You don't know what they want and some times, players will take a discount or choose a different team in the right situation.

It's not always just about the money. If they feel they can be kept together and be brought into a team that's already at the top of the conference, they can be the missing pieces to a perrenial cup contender, than what's a half million to a million bucks if you can be part of something big and enjoy all the perks of playing in a hockey crazed environement at it's best. Last time Habs were in the eastern Finals, Montreal was insane. Players like that and want to be part of that. It does have a real dollar value.
