sorry, my bad.

in any event - it's not rare for players to demand trades when they're in bad situations. as serge pointed out, there are players who refuse to report (MacKinnon, Domi, potentially Barzal - Noel's another player to look out re how he plays the Q draft) - and there are some players who game the drafts by telling teams in advance to not bother drafting them b/c they won't show (Hall, Seguin, Reinhart, many others).

i wouldn't make character judgments re Forsberg b/c he wants out.

as an aside - i wouldn't be surprised if, come draft day, McDavid is on another team.
