No Tampa fans are demanding he be shipped back to Florida, stuffed in a Bolt's uni, and be forced to play for the Lightning. We're just annoyed at the situation, as any fanbase would be. I can appreciate that he would have reasons for wanting to play in Toronto instead of Tampa, but it's still frustrating.

Being players of equal calibre isn't really necessary in this comparison.

It's interesting that you imply Kessel doing the same would be different. Does the "human perspective" not apply to him to?
