It sucks for the team, but makes sense for him personally and his family. When you receive a no trade clause, you are capable of making choices centered around yourself rather than those around you.
this, shrug it off and move on to the next target.

Who said he could be a rental for Pittsburgh? I've always heard he either wants a contract from his new team or a handshake deal with Carolina that they will resign him in the off season.

Did you read the article?

Quote:
Some believe Whitney is simply calling his shot here, raising the price and stakes for teams that he's not really interested in playing for until the team he desires puts in a call to the Hurricanes, in which case he could conceivably be moved without a contract extension and choose his new home in the summer, perhaps even signing back in Carolina. Although many think that team he is waiting on at the deadline is none other than the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Whitney might look pretty good patrolling Sidney Crosby's wing in the playoffs. He certainly fits the bill of what the Penguins need - a goal-scoring winger with clutch qualities and Stanley Cup experience.

But sources say Pittsburgh has yet to inquire about Whitney and even if the Penguins did, they are not likely to be able to offer up as much as Los Angeles was prepared to give Carolina.

So suddenly what looked like a no-brainer - the Hurricanes trading Whitney as a rental at the deadline for some future considerations - has taken on a much more convoluted look.

Whitney might well argue that he's only exercising his contractual right and that he's only interested in making one move - either a trade now to a team he'll play for in the next two or three seasons or just stay put and make his move in the summer. Or maybe go as a rental at the deadline to Pittsburgh, if that is indeed his preferred place to land.

That can't be us.
The column states that the Kings are the only team that made a reasonable offer. Based on facts that we know the logic states that it was not a first rounder. The Canes were willing to bite on that so I don't believe anyone will truley up the anti that high when the Canes already liked the Kings offer enough to let Whitney negotiate.

Did you? That's all speculation on McKenzie's part.

Lombardi doesn't hand out retirement contracts. The Wizard at age 40 just does not fit into the team Lombardi has been building for the last 2 seasons so a 3 year extension makes ZERO sense.

WE DON"T NEED THE RENTAL WHITNEY, even considering how good he COULD be with Kopi. Paying that kind of price for him(as a rental) is asinine!
