He reportedly wanted to play for a Canadian team and I can't blame him for taking full advantage of the situation.

I mean, what's that appealing about Anaheim?
They're a cap floor team that seems to be headed for a rebuild.
Their top five scorers this next season could conceivably be on different teams or retired by this time next year (Getzlaf and Perry are set to become, as of right now, UFAs next July, Ryan is apparently being shopped, and Koivu and Selanne are old).
Since they have no depth, they're likely to be horrible after losing Koivu and Selanne and it gets even worse if they lose Getzlaf and Perry for nothing.

Even though Edmonton has been awful, at least they have their best players contracted for the foreseeable future and he'll likely be a big part of a team that projects to continually get better.
