Whining starts as NHL trade deadline nears

From where I sit it looks like at least a couple NHLers have asked for trades...


I have a bit of a divided opinion on this. One the one hand, the general public is free to look for other jobs if they are unhappy with their current situation. Don't like your boos? Look for another job. Sometimes it's not that simple, but the option is always there. What do players have apart from asking to be traded? That being said, they are getting paid millions to play a game. The two biggest names right now are Martin St Louis and Ryan Kesler. Both having allegedly asked for trades. In Kesler's case the writing is on the wall for the Canucks. They are getting old and struggling mightily to score goals, as it stands Vancouver could miss the playoffs altogether. St Louis is another story. The Lightning remain a strong contender in the East. In fact, much of his discontent seems to stem from his 'snub' from Team Canada. That's pathetic. Every Canadian players wanted to be on that team. Add to that he ended up making the team anyway. Further to that rumour has it St Louis only wants to be traded to the Rangers. Quite frankly, I would like to see Steve Yzerman force St Louis to stay in Tampa Bay, at least until the end of the season. It's hard to feel sympathy for anyone making that much money to play a game.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
