He has played so little hockey this year it would be in his best interests to go to the Moose if he is healthy enough. I think the talk about him not having decided if he would go to the Moose is more about supporting his Brampton team. The last thing a team needs going into the playoffs is having its leaders making plans for an early summer. How would it look for the Canucks if Henrik Sedin told people he was on Priceline looking for cheap flights to Sweden for early May, or Kevin Bieksa saying he just can't wait for Golf season?

As an athlete in a team sport you simply don't do that at any level. I can't think of too many players who have even speculated in advance about plans for when their playoff team is eliminated. It's just not done.
