I fail to see why more and more hockey players think they are somewhat owed a free ride to a cup if they can't win it with their current team. If it was up to me, a player who goes publically with that kind of whining would stay on the team forever.
Also worth keeping in mind it doesn't always work out for the best. Ask Paul Kariya who jumped ship from his team because he thought he'd have a better chance in Colorado with his girlfriend.
I've never seen any profession where it's ok to sign a contract and then whine that you want to jump ship one week later. These athletes are spoiled so much people actually think this is normal nowadays but I think it's something we just should not accept.
I hope they send his ass to a team that bombs. That's about all he deserves.
What is this free ride stuff? He isnt expecting to go to a contendar and sit on his ass and collect a ring. He wants to go to a contender and contribute to a championship.
