It is about the location. As it has been said all along Rob wanted to head back east so that he can end his career where he wants to live when it is over. We offered more than $3m for 3 years and lets see what Rob gets when he signs.
Definitely seems to be the case. They said that we made Scuderi a very nice offer last Tuesday.
-Don’t expect a final decision from UFA blue-liner Rob Scuderi until Friday. Sources say Scuderi got a real nice offer from the Kings on Tuesday night but the veteran player wanted to see what was out there on the market with the 48-hour window for talking to other teams opening Wednesday. He has done that, hearing from several East Coast teams. Basically, if Scuderi does leave the Kings, he’s going to the East. It would not surprise me if Pittsburgh was among the several teams that called about Scuderi. The Pens know him well from his previous playing days in Pittsburgh.
Sounds like he just wants to go home back east. Can't blame him for that.
