If Winnipeg isn't offering as much as other teams (both in money and the quality of the team), I'm sure he'll do exactly that.

Agreed. I think he just wants to see if the ownership will be like old Buffalo ownership (1st priority is making money) or new Buffalo (1st priority is winning).

I don't get how WIN will be able to sign any significant FA given how the team will lose money every year with an arena whose capacity is even smaller than NYI's. How do you go with an arena that seats only 15,000? That's bush-league.

He has arbitration rights; if he gets a single year deal he's a UFA at the end of it.
