Whether he asks for the same money is up to him entirely, he knows his market value is basically whatever he says it is. Teams will re-arrange their whole spending structure to accomodate a player like that.

If we spent Sid's $8.7 million on some better wings for Staal and depth then we might be a better team.

B) Do teams offer him less? That's probably the silliest question, because teams overpay(not that he's an overpayment), but obviously if they're willing to overpay for players who aren't worth it, I'm sure they'll throw the bank at Sid. However, is there a chance teams are hesitant because he may not be the same player and think there's a risk of re-injury?
