I never said he turned down anything I'm sure he was given the same info as all the other vet fa's. go out and test the market and see what the market bears and come back to us. I think that makes since seeing as, like you said the players we signed were after izzy signed w/Det. I could see the Izzy camp looking around for a price came back to Chicago and Chicago countered and Izzy went to Det. And what BU said was he wanted to be here, but his actions didn't say that, words are not the same as intent. Again this is about Izzy being able to play and not ride pine. Det offered him a contract to start, and I doubt Emery would be willing to pay the same for a guy that was going to be a backup.
