I actually think it was the exact opposite. He wanted to be the "guy" and have the team centered around him and his cronies (Nylander, Straka, etc.). The Rangers clearly shifted in another direction with Gomez and Drury (a disastrous one, but that's beside the point). It was no longer his team, and he didn't want to simply be a piece of the puzzle.
