Well, he was playing injured in the Stanley Cup playoffs and so turned down the invitation to play in the World Champs. IIRC, he was also without a contract after the season. At the time he said no, he was still playing in the playoffs and so couldn't very well come out and say: 'I won't play for the NT because I have X injury.'
people took offense to him seemingly turning down the NT
an injury. The whole time, I'm sure the NT leaders knew the real reason, so it was never a problem from their perspective.
