Nobody on the trade forum has mentioned this, nor has anyone on this one.

Ryan Smyth had a No-Trade Clause. He waived it to come here, obviously, but he didn't make a fuss out of it. There was no drama like the Heatley situation, or Gaborik leaving Minnesota. These are the kinds of players we want on this hockey club. I am absolutely elated.

We didn't just need a finesse goalscorer, we needed more. We needed grit, we needed a front of the net presence. We needed character and players who hold others as well as themselves accountable. We needed a veteran. Holy cow.
