“To tell you the truth, I want to sign somewhere and retire there. I don’t want to move around any more. I’m 30. I don’t know how long I’m going to play, but I am looking for a long-term deal. To be able to stay as a Red Wing, I am prepared to take less money, but a fair deal, so both sides are happy. That’s what I’m looking for. I know if I go somewhere else, I could have more, but I’m willing to take less to stay here. Hopefully things work out.”
