Well, last time I checked, the Coyotes have a whole bunch of talented youth on the roster, and there are few teams with as bright a future.

It just seems suspicious, is all.
and I agree with you, for the most part, it sucks and I think teams that go through the hassel of drafting players and such should hold their rights - and this loophole, imo, should be fixed - but that isn't to say that Boston hasn't had some good young prospects, either.

But he did skip town, so it wasn't about the money; there might just be something that we don't know about.
