He doesn't want the spotlight. He is not deserving of the star label. This is not some free agent joining a rebuilding team to enjoy the ride up. This is a guy with one year left on his contract, who will be gone by the time CBJ is really good. I'm not surprised the Rangers wanted to rid themselves of such a player.
There are many more factors in play than simply not wanting to be under the spotlight.

What if Sather straight up told Gaborik that he wasn't wanted in New York anymore or Gaborik had a major problem with Torts? I would accept a trade in that situation and it has nothing to do with my compete level.
