Furthermore if I think he isn't deserving of a raise why would I think it ok for him to ask for a raise? Just cause it happens doesn't mean it's right or that it's deserving. Regardless maybe audacious was the wrong word to use in this situation...doυchey seems more appropriate.
Well that is completely different from what you have been seeing. I agree 100% that it is a dick move in terms of the Pens and Pens fans POV. Everyone hates when their best players leave over money disputes. But he certainly is well within the realm of reasonableness in asking for it. This isn't like Ville Leino asking for the moon when he scored a whopping 53 points. This is one of the best players in the world asking for a $1.3 million raise when his contract is up.
