Yes, I guess the guy can do what he wants. But I'm not going to praise a guy who's not going to respect a contract he signs.
Well, Cole can't make everyone happy. I would choose to please my family too over some select fans who think it's in his best interest to play for a couple more years a sport you have lost a passion for. IF this is indeed the issue here.

In reality I think he is just frustrated about the whole lockout, and he also got a bit of a taste of what his life is gonna be like when he hangs them up, being with his family and all. Can't really blame him for the words he spoke to Chantale, even though he should have know better.

I'll still cheer on Cole as long as he plays hard, but his entire attitude toward the lockout has not been very flattering.
Maybe I should have clarified but I think Markov's demeanor with the reporters is getting old. It's your job as a former all star, assistant captain, and role model on the team to show a bit of respect to the media. That would be the proper way to conduct oneself, and I don't really care all that much I think it's funny too, but its also outplayed. Start acting like a leader.
