And it wouldn't be interesting to know how much of this talk there was before the extension.
I've thought this for a long time. The extension has nothing to do with it.

He doesn't hit, he plays with little to no grit (contrary to image), he's a puck hog, he arguably disappears in the playoffs, etc. I mean, the guy obviously has a real drive to improve his game and works hard and so on. I just think that drive comes from his ego. He cares about being a "consummate professional" because he cares about being seen doing it.
