Not at all. That's arbitration for you. He obviously doesn't expect to get $2M, but his agent has to set the bar high to maximize his client's earnings. The agent can still build a semi-credible argument in favor of $2M even if he knows it's too high. Setting the asking price at $1.5M would only help the Leafs management's argument. The $2M number could also force the Leafs to settle before arbitration.
