Does Tarasenko have a sense of entitlement, too? They wanted him to come sooner and he signed the KHL contract instead, even opted not to buy out his last year.

I have no inside info on it, but I think you can interpret that Cole situation more than one way....and kind of extreme to tarnish him 5 1/2 years later on a decision he made as a teenager. You could just as easily say, "With how long he's taken to break into the NHL he was right to continue his development in college for an extra year before joining a men's pro league."
