I know that, where I a talented hockey player given the opportunity to select my team of choice, I would absolutely do the same thing. There is a big difference between loyalty to a team that you have signed a contract with and loyalty to a team that merely called your name on draft day. If Blake Wheeler had tried to back out of a contractual commitment, then I to would be questioning his character and loyalty, but he never made any commitments to Phoenix that I am aware of.
