Staal? McDonagh? The kid is a good player, though. Just a tough situation. I want to do what's best for him and sometimes that means a trade." I don't think comments like this hurt a player's value in the real world. Only on message boards.
Except it's Moore and Falk who are getting his minutes, not McD or Staal.
AV should have deflected the question to something like the whole team has been inconsistent and he is adjusting to the system and what not. Otherwise he is singling out DZ.
DZ is a big boy and should handle it, but it's not reflecting well on AV.
