What? Where did you get that from? Everything he's done or said since the trade indicates otherwise.
Doesn't really matter. You could tell from his "Comin' in hot" tweet and his general "surprise" at being traded that he would've been happy staying in Anaheim. If you had to move from Anaheim to Ottawa, would you be happy?
Anyway, I don't really want to rehash ancient history...the point is, I don't think he'd want to go play in Edmonton, but if he only gets a 10-team no-trade list, the decision isn't totally his. And for Diddle's sake, why are we talking about trading him to Edmonton? There's a zero percent chance that happens given their impending cap issues, generally good play, and lack of a need for wingers right now.
I think he was genuinely excited to come. He re-iterated in his first season that he really did enjoy Ottawa and of course he signed a 7 year deal. I'm sure he was surprised as most ppl are when they get traded.
Incidentally, I did the opposite and moved from Ottawa to Anaheim. I'm not unhappy but still miss Ottawa. The shawarmas here just suck
It's-15 here right now.
