He's going from an environment where the media has a degree in proctology and wraps there instruments in razor wire to the Nashville media where they perfected 'Who are you and what is this hockey thing?'

As much as we as fans whine about the lack of coverage, Nashville is using it as a selling point. A place where the taxes are low, the media is non existent, and you can be 'human'. To be honest, if the Country music stars, Titans, ETC can walk down the street and not be bothered what' s a hockey player going to see? Hell, HE might be doing the star watching here.

SK and SOB pure and simple have gone to a place where they expect you to play hockey. Not be a CEO, not be a spokesman, just be yourself and play hockey.

Who WOULDN'T want that?
So playing in the hockey hotbeds of Anaheim and Tampa really devloped him into a top D-man. This trade has bad mojo all over it. He's the same age as Weber, Suter, & Klein and this is his 4th NHL stop (with the 3 prior ending in a "don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out") Beginning to wonder about Poile as a GM questionable trades recently. Drafting has been a OK but Fenton handles most of that BTW.`
