Why are you surprised? The Rangers offered him a contract when he became a free agent--it wasn't a one-way contract (paying the same amount wherever he played), so he signed with Tampa Bay instead (they gave him the one-way he wanted). Both Sather and Torts (who actively recuited him out of college) like him.
