That does not mean a one time shot, whether we win it all this year or not.

What was he going to do then? A couple months to 'live the dream' then rejoin the rebuild in Calgary for the next five years?

Anyone with an ounce of sense would have realized this was not a rental.
I'm sure a lot of people thought he'd return to Calgary, especially if he won a cup here.
