Interview with a player agent (Don Meehan)

ESPN have an interview with player agent Don Meehan. I thought it was really interesting. Although I have to say that I thought this was amusing:

Quote:
ESPN.com: Have you ever not taken a client or walked away from a client because you didn't think they'd be good citizens?

Meehan:
Oh sure. I've done it not to make any points with anybody, but sure. I've walked from Jagr.

I remember with Jaromir Jagr -- and I don't mind if you use this -- I remember when Jagr came to Pittsburgh. There were difficulties then. He insisted upon a car, a free car. He insisted on a free apartment. He insisted upon a lot of things that (Pittsburgh GM) Craig Patrick certainly couldn't supply and that I couldn't guarantee because that wasn't part of our landscape here.
Why does that not surprise me.
