If he plays well for us I'm sure he'd take an offer for 2-3mil considering he's making nowhere near that on his current contract. The fact thats he's from here makes it much more likely that he would consider resigning and I'm not sure where you're getting it that his wife is unhappy.

Thank you to the @LAKings and #Kings fans for welcoming us to LA. Sad to leave my hometown, but excited for @scrivens_30's hometown!
Just because she's disappointed about leaving her hometown doesn't mean she is going to be anything like prongers wife, and she actually seems pretty supportive.
If I was the wife of an Oiler, and originally from California, I wouldn't even be that upset. The majority of the year you can spend at home, and while in Edmonton, rent a nice condo or something downtown and fly back to Cali during Oiler roadtrips.
If you have kids, there are worse places to raise them than Edmonton.
