Now - I'm not saying he did anything shady or illegal. It was a valid contract, and no-one was forcing Moyes' hand. But let's not kid ourselves - he was being paid an outrageous amount of cash and we got very, very little in return. Pretty much the worst signing in franchise history.
You can't blame Gretzky, like he was going to turn the offer down. If it's one thing we've learned in this whole process it's that Moyes is not very responsible with his money!
