Exactly it's a business and say if a team like the leafs traded for me, I'd be just as excited because it's at least a team with a lot of history/fans and quite frankly even though I hate the leafs, it would still be an honor to wear any original 6 teams jersey. If the management saw something in me they wanted to trade for, it's a question of respect imo. Most players aren't that petty. Cammalleri was a leafs fan and he chose to sign here even though I think Burke offered more money/similar terms.

I'm not sure but wasn't Subban a leafs fan too? It doesn't matter once you become a professional hockey player.
