No wonder he has "attitude issues" or whatever. He's probably just legitimately annoyed with the Islanders.

I don't know if he's NHL ready just yet, but on a team like the Islanders he should of at least been given a chance to play a few games and prove people wrong.

I'd give Maata for him.
Perhaps you haven't followed the situation. They played him extensively (I think 50+ games) last season and he floundered, so it's not as though he hasn't been "given a chance." The consensus seems to be that he was rushed and the the Islanders have handled his development extremely poorly. I'm inclined to believe that. Nonetheless, I don't like a guy on an ELC demanding a trade.
