Maletta and Bateman both played the "draft game" to pick their landing spot - so they're not likely to want to leave to head to a worse situation and they'll have no-trade clauses.

I think players who try and control their destinies are a problem for us. I get wanting to go to the best situation as all the kids who are deemed good enough to call their shots also think they're destined to play in the NHL, but I think it could also be a character flaw and highlights entitlement issues which would then tend to go hand in hand with work ethic issues. We have 6-7-8 guys who played this game.
