I think Charelli and Neely are messing with the Young man's head.
I think this is their way of motivating a young guy who has had some professionalism issues and spends a lot of time enjoying the amble bars Boston has to offer.
This is staging on their part and I imagine they released the statement saying he is being shopped around.
The expectations for him was that he would be Stamkos by now, he obviously is not, but that is what they are expecting around here (I live in NH and get all the Boston Sports stations).
And then you throw into the mix Marchand's rise in stock compared to where he and Sequin were drafted, and the whole Kessel trade deal this kid is under a lot of pressure to perform.
With the losses they are expected to have this off season, I do not expect them to trade him, they are just trying to motivate his off season!
