Kariya's deal wasn't about winning. It was about positioning himself for free agency, as well as getting revenge on the Ducks. Bryan Murray declined to pick up Kariya's 10m option in hopes of getting him to take a deal worth 7m so that the team could afford to add Selanne. The Ducks, if you recall, had just been to the Cup finals. Such a deal might have made the Ducks the 2004 champions; adding Teemu Selanne to a team that was a period away from winning the Cup.
Instead, Kariya took far less to sign with a worse team that had a better group of forwards but less chance of winning because they would give him a one-year deal that would hopefully allow him to post a huge season going into UFA.
Kariya's signing with Nashville and St. Louis as the highest bidder further reinforces the fact that Kariya was more interested in gold than silver. If Kariya was truly about winning as some of his fanboys seem to suggest, he'd have taken a cheaper deal to play for a contender rather than sign the deal that had the best moneymaking potential as he saw it, or to sign with a rival because he felt slighted by his GM asking him to take less so his team could add another elite level player.
I have always felt Kariya is a selfish ******. Everything everyone was saying about 'selfish Sidney' during the finals is much more applicable to Kariya, and always has been.



I always thought Kariya just hated the wings, and wanted to play for who was a key rival at the moment. going to colorado before the rivalry died a little bit, then to nashville after a pretty good wings pred series, then to st louis to keep with the theme of having the wings handing it to him. unsure.gif
