If he'd accidently said something which was true, i'd be fine with it. He's a kid and not used to the media and if he let it slip.. ok..
But he, when asked about it, says i'm not going to CHL. Which turns out to be exactly what he's doing, that's a thought out lie.
Or maybe he changed his mind? Kids change their minds about as often as they change their underwear. It's part of being a kid.
If he already knew that, you don't comment at all.
In this case, refer to Brynäs.
But saying, i'll sign with team xxx and not yyy.
And then 2 days later say i'm going to sign with team yyy.
That's looks pretty bad..
Who knows what's true, he's lied at least once.. maybe the CHL is his next lie.. i'm signing with a KHL team might be his new thing tomorrow.
I just think it's unprofessional.
That's fair enough, because he isn't a professional yet.
Sounds like a wise choice for him after all. He's been in North America before and he'll be playing a lot of games against good competition. A lot of goalie talent leaving Sweden at the same time now though, that's a little sad.
Really surprised he went with Erie over some of the other teams in the OHL. Sure, Erie got McDavid, but they're still by far not a top contender in the league yet. I was almost certain he was going to London.
