All I'm pointing out is that he signed for the money in the past, and there is no reason why he wouldn't do it again. So what if he said he wouldn't? Every player says they love the fans and want to play there for the rest of their career. It's meaningless.
How do you say a guy that has been with the same team for 18 years goes where the money is? That's just ridiculous.

Yeah he signed an offer sheet, but he knew Colorado would match. Was he supposed to decline the offer and play for less?

He's been UFA mutliple times since, and hasn't even checked out the market.
