Aside from money why would sammy push to avoid the buyout when management and likely coaches wants him gone? Its pretty obvious he is preventing the team from moving forward with his actions. He has to know he is just being a huge pain in the ass.
I will bet ANYONE on here $20 that Philly will win the cup before the Wings do. Making moves, even if a fewthe vast majority of them are bad, is better than doing nothing. And Kenny has basically made ZERO moves for 5 years.
