I disagree - at least he won't be signing anywhere else in the NHL. He is loyal to a fault. Look at the way he treated his stint in the KHL during the lockout - he was one of the last guys to leave because he thought the fans deserved to see him play in the all star game. If he leaves, he heads home to Russia, but he's not skipping to another NHL city.
Also remember Pavel signing with 2 different russian teams at the same time while trying to gain leverage in negotiations with the Wings in 2005.
