In his resignation, he outlined a need to be closer to Windsor in order to look after "business interests" there. Any of the Ontario teams would be best, of course, but almost any Canadian team is superior to Columbus in terms of proximity.
The only thing I didn't like on that Spitfires team was the coaching. I didn't like their breakout system, and far as team toughness goes, after Kassian, Ellis was probably their most physical player. Boughner has a nice resume but I would take a pass.
