Jake DeBrusk revealed his true colours towards the Boston Bruins in an announcement after leaving the team.

Yesterday marked the end of the Jake DeBrusk era with the Boston Bruins after Jake DeBrusk decided to sign a 7-year $5.5 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks not long after free agency opened.
It was made clear by the Boston Bruins and Don Sweeney that they were going to take a aggressive approach with DeBrusk, and it became pretty evident that he was going to walk in free agency.
The day before the draft Don Sweeney held a press conference and was asked how contract talks were going between the Bruins and DeBrusk, and Sweeney stated they didn't really make any progress in talks.
DeBrusk spoke out after signing with the Canucks and revealed his true colours towards the Boston Bruins.
«It's been a crazy process, obviously, free agency and going through it for the first time,» DeBrusk explained of his decision. «But in saying that, in terms of obviously being in Vancouver, they were very aggressive. I knew I had a really good feeling about them. We were talking and things of that nature and things were looking like they were going to hopefully go in the right direction.

«It's funny, I woke up pretty early today and felt like a pretty normal day and then as soon as I kind of got the confirmation that I was coming here, I've been overwhelmed throughout the whole day. It's been really exciting and it's something I just can't wait to get to the city and I can't wait to get started. I feel very lucky and honored to become a Vancouver Canuck.»

Don Sweeney had a message for DeBrusk after letting him walk in free agency.
«I wish Jake well,» Sweeney said. «Obviously, was a tremendous Bruin. Great opportunity for him in Vancouver as well as Danton and Derek. Somebody tweeted out maybe we should have just made a trade, it would have been easier.»
