The reports that he was jaded by the negotiations and took a short deal to make it easier to move him.

Every player in the NHL is signed, so because he was "just" signed doesn't take off the the trade market. Gotta think Columbus needs a good centre back in any trade.

yeah alot of players might be unhappy to a degree with something but the season is starting so soon I highly doubt he gets moved honestly...
IF he got moved what do you think the price would be?
McCann is the best C PIT could give back (and yeah IK PIT doesn't really have the best pieces for a trade)...

I don’t see Pittsburgh as a viable candidate. Columbus needs high end potential offensive players. Columbus only moves him for futures (which Pittsburgh doesn’t have) if they decide to rebuild post 21-22
