But I really hope his gonna make it this time. The guy is leaving several millions on the table, to play for The New York Rangers.

Edit. For the record .This is just my guessings, not anything Zucc has said.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but he's a restricted free agent after the season, right? The Rangers organization will retain his right as long as they qualify him with an offer, if he chooses not to accept the terms of the contract offered. But can't another NHL team offer him a better deal, and then Rangers has to offer him the same terms to retain him.

Say for argument sake that the organization offer him a one year, two-way deal worth 1.2 million a year. If then say Detroit comes in and offer him a two year, one-way deal woth 2.5 million a year, and he accepts that, then they can keep him by offering him the same deal, or else they will have to let him sign with Detroit.
