RFAs that aren't arbitration-eligible have one tool for leverage. He's exercising it. Just like Subban. It happens. It's not an ego thing. Strictly business.
Being a RFA is a defacto-contract by C.B.Agreement. It means you're sill the new guy and if you want any sort of big money you need to suck it up and play by the rules like everyone else, you can't go and get top market dollar just yet. Leverage comes with time, he'll find out soon he doesn't have much of any leverage
