As has been mentioned above, the signs at this stage point to it being a joint decision to part ways.
Aside from that it's their customers
that Stars wants to keep happy and loyal, not their sponsored pros. The sad but true fact is that Greg Raymer no longer being a sponsored pro probably won't have much impact on the site's customer base, especially in growing markets like Asia.
