Well, if you don't think he has soured on his situation then I don't know what to tell you. Please don't cite press blurbs where everyone just tows the line. He is young and I am sure feels slighted by being buried in the AHL. Let's not forget about the money he isn't making while down there. Yeah, I have a feeling a fresh start would be greeted with open arms, especially if it meant he could be making 70 foot passes to Patrick Kane for 15 assists a year.
Don't make me laugh, a fresh start? He is not someone that strikes me as someone who needs a fresh start, he's 21 for christ sakes and an RFA. Steve Mason needed a fresh start. Jason Spezza maybe needs a new start, but a 21-year old still developing defensemen?? No way.
Colin White was 23 when he broke into the league. Paul Martin, 23. There are other examples as well who are not Devils, I guess Hedman from Tampa.
