Only in Toronto is being loyal to your team, no matter what, a bad thing and a sign of a lack of motivation and/or competitiveness.

Other teams would wish, their players would be as loyal to them as Kaberle and Sundin were/are to us. Granted, it can turn against a team like it did with Sundin, but I'd rather have players hanging onto their team in all situations compared to other situations, where teams can't sign their own players, because they want to leave badly or where they do anyhting for a trade.

If only our management wouldn't have sigend that many ntc/nmv-clauses ...

But think about situations like Yashin, Healtey or the situation in European soccer, isn't that a bigger threat to most teams?
