Well, now he's saying it wasn't about the money, but how they treated the negotiation. IMO his agent screwed him a bit, and he probably didn't have realistic expectations. That being said, he's been open about the fact that he know acknowledges he couldn't play at the same level anymore and his knee won't be 100% again. At some point, once he is past all this, I'm sure it will be fine. He may not send Phil Emery Christmas cards, but at some stage he will probably acknowledge to himself that it's a business and it probably couldn't have gone another way. (well, other than his agent telling him to sign the 1 year deal and be happy about it)
