Per NHL.com: "The 29-year-old winger left the Pittsburgh Penguins as a free agent only a few weeks after their six-game Cup final loss to Detroit to jump camps and sign a US$7.45 million one-year contract with the Red Wings on July 2.
He turned down a multi-year offer from the Penguins and is reported to have rejected an $81 million, nine-year offer from the Edmonton Oilers for what he felt was his best chance to win a championship."
I guess this is old news, but its the first time i heard it. AMAZING! Turning down $81 milling for the chance to win a cup! That is unheard of, and truly admirable. Especially in this day and age.
