Player movement is a reality in sports. I expect Puempel will live and die with the Kitchener Rangers. He was dying with the Peterborough Petes.

As a fan, it's easy to see it the way you are. Put yourself in the shoes of a kid that has dreams of playing in the NHL for more than just a cup of tea and hopefully signing a long-term deal. The CHL is a development league first and foremost for players with NHL ambitions.

As a fan of the Sens, you've gotta like that he's thinking this way. And it's interesting he mentions "being around Ottawa, I realized this was the best thing" as his thinking...it probably isn't out of the realm of possibility that our organization may have told him or his agent that finding another place to play may be best for him.
