Marchant clearly stated

"Whether (general manager) Kevin (Lowe) wants to believe me or not, I am certainly grateful to the Edmonton Oilers for what they've done for me," Marchant said recently. "Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I certainly wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for them."

so i don't know what your beef with him is about
