Dater, in his latest podcast, blames the bad play on a hurt knee.

Either way...like you said, the offer was more than fair.
That's just a crock of an excuse.

The minute he started playing for Ottawa he helped pull them past the Avalanche in the standings that year. In my eyes, he wanted out and whether he consciously did it or not he wasn't playing to the level he could have played to, and showed that he was capable of after getting traded.
