I think it's one of those situations where Florida wants him to progress into a better player and he won't be doing that within their organization. Same with Loktionov for us.

He's possibly going to be out of the shuffle here in a season or so with the defensive youth Florida has in Kulikov, Gudbranson, Petrovic, and Robak. He's also competing right now with Campbell, Jovo, Strachan, Caruso and Kuba as well.

Just one of those things, contract up at the end of the year...Florida might as well do him a favor and get him somewhere he could make more of an impact before his contract is up.
