I think a tremendous amount has been interpreted into that one question out of the blue (if he was willing to negotiate a new contract in advance). Its asked like 13 month's before his contract is up. He was obviously not prepared for it nor really had thought the situation through. He says only good things about the organization, nothing negative. Then he laughs and says that he has to talk with his agent.
I am not saying that he gave the response you get from 10 other players in that situation. But that is what people really are basing their reaction to it from, not what he actually said and did not say.
These guys are often machines when you ask them questions. Hank isn't quite like that. And he also seem like the type who could think alot about what to eat for lunch or what cloath to wear. Did he really think more about keep playing for his current team than anyone would? Or did he just -- out loud -- go like "what do I want to do the rest of my life eehehhhh iiii is there things I need to consider here?"
