100% is an exaggeration.
He could have left, likely for more money, without restrictions when he was a UFA a few summers ago. They were throwing garbage trucks full of money at him, and he choose to sign in the NHL.
Safer bet is that it's a mixture of money, family and disillusionment with the New Jersey Devils.
