He didn't get a guarantee he would play in the NHL and from his quotes he clearly felt that the Oilers thought he needed to play in the AHL, and that he didn't fit the Oiler's need.

"Edmonton has said that they have enough small players, that there's nothing wrong with me, but that Im small. That doesnt feel that nice to hear, so it's not just about the money. I want to be in the NHL, not in the AHL."

If he got a NHL guarentee, which I think he should have, then this wouldn't be a problem.

Then why does anyone risk wasting years of their short hockey career in the SEL?
You're grasping at straws and you know it. SEL is a way better league than the AHL. If he was tearing up the AHL, not many people would care. A lot of 21 year olds can own the AHL.
