This kid and his character is nothing but a fake shell, he doesn't care about winning or being on a Cup contender otherwise he wouldn't have disrespected the organization, making demands, and making the ice time an issue. It's all about him and wanting more from the team, his parents, agent, himself thinking he deserves more than what he's earned so far. He's never going to fit in this team because of his demands, there's no team concept with him that's why MG did the right thing and went against what he thought was a good pick in a character guy, and traded this potential cancer out while his value is still high.
His parents might have pressured him into asking for a trade, as did his agent. I don't think he "wanted out", but he was probably thinking for the long term potential of his career.
