I agree: KO flat out abandoned the team whereas the other notable departures of Motherwell from BC and Trotter from DU were due to extenuating circumstances. The latter two were axed for the season whereas KO could have very well finished this year.

Yet, I can understand the knee-jerk reaction from the fans. No one likes to see top-flight talent leave a program no matter what the circumstances. If this had happened with, say, Rau, Turris or Oshie you could imagine the reaction and fallout.
