NHLer takes shot at former team after being traded

After being traded Sunday night to the Chicago Blackhawks along with teammate Dylan Strome, it seems like Brendan Perlini was pretty excited to be traded from Arizona.


Sunday night, the Chicago Blackhawks and the Arizona Coyotes wanted to improve both of their teams by trading away some players. The Blackhawks sent Nick Schmaltz, a former 1st round pick who went 20th overall back in 2014 for Brendan Perlini (12th overall) in 2014 along with Dylan Strome (3rd overall) in 2015.

Without a doubt, there will be a debate on who the trade for the next couple of days, but it seems like one player is more excited than ever to have been traded. The shade throwing started once NHL insider Craig Morgan interviewed Arizona Coyotes' GM John Chayka.

According to Morgan, Chayka explained that there is a difference between patience and hope and you simply cannot build a franchise simply on hope, stating vaguely that his hope has run out of both of the players he sent down to Chicago. He also added that you can't wait for the day that these two players could become what they were thought to be when they were drafted back in 2014 and 2015. For sure, this is vaguely stated even for a general manager to say about his players, and Perlini throwing shade on the Arizona organization has brought to light why he and his teammate are packing their bags for Chicago.
I'm excited to be back in a hockey market, Perlini stated on his arrival in Chicago, from what Chicago insider Mark Lazerus has tweeted earlier. His former teammates who have played in Chicago have told him it's a great city to play in.
 Seems like the trade has made a young man happy after moving away from a hockey franchise that's been having trouble planting their roots.
