    1.  His hometown isn't Boston and he's only played here for a few years.

    2.  Can you point to any 28 years olds who have taken less money as UFAs to stay with their current team?

    Doubt it but I will say this just like DK and Looch they seem to be overpaid to me watching them in the regular season but when the playoffs start they are worth every freaking penny!

    Tim Thomas Thanks for the memories !

    At 28, UFA status, and playing out of his mind in the playoffs - this is his best opportunity to maximize his career earnings potential. Would you if you were him?

    Re: Do You Think Horton...

    After seeing Horton's interview with Scott Oake the other night. The grin on his face was one of sure contentment.  Winning is addictive. He may test the market, but he may also want to stay. Nobody knows what Horton will do, but Horton himself. If he would stay for 3 mill/3yr. I would hope PC would figure out a way to do it. He's proven he makes this Bruin team a lot better in the play-offs. He's got a lot more big goals left. I'd prefer they were with Boston instead of the possibility of being against them. However, I don't want PC breaking the bank either.

    Personally if i was getting payed good money and i liked  my team and the city,if my family really liked it there,i would stay for less money.I mean if the money was crazy more over what I was getting sure ,but that's just me money isn't everthing.

    It's not just you kitch. Jerred Weaver of the Angels liked playing there so much that he left between 25 and 50 million on the table to stay there long term. He's also got Scott Boras as his agent. Boras is known to be as ruthless as any agent in pro sports but admitted that the decision is all up to the player when it comes right down to it.

    That is all well and good to say (and I don't necessarily disagree with that premise), but the way athletes view money is different from you and I. This will likely be the biggest payday of his career and given the Bruins financial situation and offseason priorities (sign Rask, sign Rask, and sign Rask!), his offer from the Bruins will likely be short years (3?) with only a slight raise (4.5-5?).

     

    When another team offers a 5 year, $30 Million dollar deal - he will accept and he and his family will adjust to a new city just fine, I'm sure.

    Yea, I'm kinda with 'kitchener' on this one. Not too many 28 year old, UFA status guys, have to choose whether to walk away from a potential Stanley Cup dynasty or not (don't worry, I'm not getting ahead of myself, everything is hypothetical here)

    Besides, I saw that Scott Oake interview as well. Nathan Horton seems a different guy than most.

     

    He is a big tournament player.

    There will always be players - though not tonnes of them - who will forgo the huge payday to stick with a team or a city that they love. Stan Smyl, Teemu Selanne and Dave Manson pop to mind as examples. Different people value different things. Two years ago the Jets offered Teemu a ridiculous amount of cash to come back (reports out of Winni[peg were that he was told he could write his own number) but he responded by basically saying he was a middle aged guy with a wife, kids and dogs and while it would be great to be a Jet again, it would have been a huge pain in the a__ to move.

    Money's not everything to everybody.

    If Horton took this deal, I'd assume he needed to get back to the Doc to re-check that head injury.

    While its true money isnt everything to everybody, many of the very few examples you cite are baseball players that make more money in a contract than a hockey player would make in a career... or hockey players that are older and at the end, having made their money and are settled.

    Horton may love Boston, but even though he's 28, he could very easily be reading what Andy MacDonald did yesterday.  He could be one more good hit in the head from retirement.  If he passed on this moment, where he absolutely will make all the money he's ever going to make, he'd be kinda foolish.

    A contender with cap space with throw the bank at him (Detroit?) He doesn't have to play in Boston to compete for the Cup.

    No, unless the Bs trade Boychuk or buyout Pevs, he's gone.

    Would he take $4 million instead of $5, maybe, but he's not taking $2.

    Funny how this playoffs has increased his pay from $2-3 to $4-6 million.

    Toronto will very likely make a play for him.

    I think Chiarelli will figure out how to be a front-runner for Horton's services. I think intangibles beyond money will figure into Horton's decision making.

    Incorrect . Dunnville has a team.

    maybe the chance to be on on a 2,3,4x stanley cup winning team would be pretty persuasive!!!

    Crazy cash these ball players get eh San? Weaver took 85 mill for 5 years (17 per) in 2011. At least 3 or 4 pitchers with comparable numbers have signed for between 20 and 25 mill per season since then. He left at least 25 mill on the table. No doubt he's a rarity though.
