Assumptions or not, why do we treat hockey players to a higher standard than 99.9% of society? Everyone is always open to better opportunities, advancements, etc. Last time I checked we live in a free society where one has options to make the best decisions for one's self. And please let's not start with the sanctity of the "contract". Contracts are agreements that are made to be broken, to be replaced by a subsequent agreement. Keeps all the "banana's" of this world employed.

I also don't understand the panic of losing a player that is so far down the depth chart that he's looking like an AHL lifer. Please someone indicate how Valentenko makes this roster in the next five years given the age of our current defense corp, the fact that Carle and Weber are ahead in Hamilton, with the possibility of Emelin coming to Montreal next year, and we haven't even touched Subban and McDo.
