I hate to enter this level of analysis of a quote from a 20 year old, but it's not like he gave a very confident or assertive response, either: "...you can pick a different team sometimes...".

Instead, I'd be worried if he said, "I guess you could look at it like that, but you also have the opportunity to explore free agency if you graduate, so there's benefits both ways". That's a much more direct statement that shows an actual understanding of his options that he can only get by considering them. His actual statement is much less worrisome to me.

I think he's just parroting what his agent has told him. That's is pretty natural. All hockey players are parrots. Part of the "aw shucks" charm they have, I guess.
