Two trade requests in the past year? Who would want that? Funny how he went from unhappy on the most defensive team in the league to unhappy on the least defensive team in the league.
Apparently he's not happy because he doesn't feel he's being used correctly.
“I get no time on the ice, it’s hard to prove my ability with only ten to twelve minutes of ice time,” Erat explained. “At the beginning of the season it was only about seven minutes, and then it went up, so [Adam Oates] let me play more defense than offense.”
