I think he wanted to still be the man though. I believe some interviews after he left kind of hinted at that. He knew that the Rangers were moving in a different direction. It was soon going to be Drury & Gomez's team () and with Nylander gone, Straka would soon be gone, all of his other buddies were pretty much gone. I remember times when he would talk about how there soon wouldn't be any Czechs left on the team and such. So after Nylander left, he decided it was time to go.
