EDIT: Of course, this is also ignoring the rumors that Korpikoski was unhappy with his 4th line role/fringer player on the Rangers and was threatening to return to Europe prior to the Lisin trade.
Yeah, people need to remember this. From all I can find, the rumors were true and the Rangers essentially traded him because he demanded more icetime or he'd leave. you can't always just throw icetime at every player, especially if someone starts demanding icetime.

I'm glad he's doing well in Phoenix and it makes me feel good that he's developing into the player I thought he could be, but it wasn't working out in NY for some reason. I'm not sure why he was so impatient with the Rangers, but he forced their hand
