Rare, but refreshing.

Certainly he's not a loser.

That said KHL is going to be more and more a reasonable option for many more players. Several rinks, including the one in Sochi, are putting a different potential spin on KHL. 5-10yrs from now who's to say that a Euro-Asian expanded league market doesn't hold similar weight to the NHL. The world order is changing. Economically, power, etc. NA's dance in the sun could be past zenith.
To be fair, he'll still be making those same gobs of money, in probably half the time. Pretty sure that factors in with family, quality of life and heart.

I have to admit, I'm a little curious as to what the landscape of pro hockey will look like in 10 years.
