Jake has been positive about his experience in Columbus both publicly after the trade and privately. I'd rather he not say stuff like he said at the Flyers event, but given the audience, I suppose that's going to happen sometimes. The sad thing is, he's probably right.
Multiple people reported it right after it happened. Why would anyone make that up? I could see people making up rumors that Carter wanted out to get him cheap but Jake saying that about Columbus? What is there to gain? Nothing..
