he could have changed his mind for any number of reasons. They could have gotten really deep with things and maybe asked Fletcher if he honestly thought he had a place here long-term. If Gui wanted to be with his kid, the promise of a long term relationship might have been enough to actually get them to move here. If Fletcher was honest and said "probably not", maybe it was enough impetus to make Gui rethink his short and long term goals. I still think he wants and will get a short term contract this time around, but after that he'll be looking for a place long term. While he's waiting, he wants to be where his kid is.
Something like that. Believe it or not, some people do place their kids before their job.

And how do you know he didn't lie or asked for too much? How do we know that he didn't ask for a multi-year deal? Same thing really. We have no freaking clue who did what.

Hard to lowball someone you can't trust and who p***ed away an entire season two years ago all because he was lazy.

Oh yes, the infamous "lazy concussion." Don't you just hate it when you're sitting around, not doing what you're supposed to be doing, and BAM, concussion.

Well I wasnt sitting, but I was goofing off after school one day when I randomly got hit in the head by a baseball that someone hit.

Don't think I got a concussion, but I was lazy.

Maybe Lats bailed when Fletcher wanted a clause in his contract that required him to wear a helmet at all times?

Quite honestly I think the entire team should be required to wear bubble wrap next year. Although Kassian would probably spend most of his time on the bench popping everybody's bubbles.

Surprised he signed so cheap. He must have been very serious about being closer to his son.

I think this is righting on the wall that LATS didn't want to be here. For one reason or another.

Love all the rage; if he was serious about moving closer to his son what more could Fletcher have done...?

For one, not throw away a player's rights. Too valuable, even with his injury history.

Buuuuuuut, it's done with now and I'm over it.

Weren't we given every indication that he wanted to stay here? We wanted to keep him on an incentive-laden deal and then he pulls a 180 saying he wants to move close to his son. Realistically what chance did we have to move his rights at that point?
