Yeah and a confession is a confession, even when it's forced through torture. Oh I should have mentioned unappreciative fans.
He could have got a lot more if he went on the open market
except these players are being paid millions to play a game that most would play for free. such torture
every player should know that their contract is likely to change when a new cba arrives. why do you think that parise and suter got a ton of signing bonus money? because signing bonus money isn't subject to a new cba and because they knew that their contracts were going to be changed.
There is no way that datsyuk would have gotten "a lot more" on the open market in 2007 especially as he was considered a playoff choker up until that point. in fact, a lot of people thought that holland overpaid big time even on this board. http://www.letsgowin...ract-extension/
although it's easy to say that he would have gotten more on the open market now that we have seen him play over the last 6 years
