It's also important to keep in mind that a trade demand usually doesn't cripple a CHL team as much as it would an NHL team.
A star demands a trade from your NHL team, it could be four or five years before you've developed a prospect to replace him. A star player demands a trade from your CHL team, it's at most two years before your draft picks become impact players and replace him. It's in part due to the nature of the leagues (the CHL has complete player turnover over every four seasons).
Consequently, trade demands aren't as big a piss off for the CHL teams.
