I agree with your last statement. Though I feel there is more to the story than meet's our eyes. He might have become a nuisance in the lockerroom for all we know. Some happened that soured his relationship with the Predators.
I sincerely believe that it was a money issue. As opposed to paying Skrastins over 1 million dollars, they'd rather take the risk with cheaper guys like Allison, Brookbank, Schnabel, etc. If that's the case, Leipold is the one to point fingers to. However, even if it was a money issue, I think Skrastins going for a 3rd rounder will go down as a steal of the Avalanche.
