This guy didn't even return their calls when they were trying to get in contact with them.

Then comes the “shortlist” to tease people for days. Now he’s trumping the league’s vets by announcing his decision a day before FA officially starts.

Don't like him a bit. He's handled this whole situation wrong.
Agree to disagree, I guess.

Anaheim did nothing other than draft him--it isn't like they cultivated his development and then he bolted.

As for the timing, blame the CBA. He couldn't talk to teams until last weekend, and he can't sign before tomorrow. All told, he took about 1 week to make the biggest decision of his life. He hasn't paraded in front of the cameras--as far as I can tell, he hasn't said a word to anyone in the media.
