Basically, this is an absolute non-story.
Just think about it, there are several NHL teams that probably have AT LEAST 2 or 3 players wanting out. And by several, I mean more than half the league
. And it can be for myriad reasons; icetime, unhappiness with current contract, the coaching staff, wanting a change of scenery, wanting a chance at a Stanley Cup, etc. If McCown were to say "three current Dallas Stars players want out", you would hear yawns (not to mention turning of radio dials) from St. John's to Victoria. Big freaking whoop. But because there's this ridiculous built-in stigma that Winnipeg is an undesirable destination, he has everyone listening.
But hey, that's a great tactic if you're a radio entertainer. Just look, he's got people starting a thread and mentioning his name.
I was about to post the same.
Every year, a teams roster is changed.
If these players want out, I am happy to show them the door.
