Ryan Whitney is relieved that he wasn't traded.
Earlier in this season, Whitney might have welcomed the change of scenery as the Oilers were barely playing him. What a difference a couple months can make. "It was great, it was just a good feeling," said Whitney said. "If I'd gone to another team, it probably would have been to team in the playoffs or competing for a spot. But to be able to do it here is a lot more special, because I've been here all year." It still wouldn't be surprising to see him sign elsewhere as an unrestricted free agent this summer.
