it's really not all that unusual for players to want off horrible teams - if rumours are true, several members of the petes want out. tavares asked to be traded during his draft year - and i think huberdeau has told SJ that he wants to be traded. i wouldn't be too quick to make character judgements.

Prince George is a prospect graveyard and Dean Clark is a buffoon, I can't really blame his family for looking out for him in this case.

We also don't know the entire story right now.
i agree. when teams have systemic problems they should look at fixing them so they're more desirable places to play. i know some teams have a geographic disadvantage - and sometimes prospects will refuse to go to them at all - but forsberg has put in a year and a half you can't say he didn't try.
