Had to make a trade and when the big market teams know that, they can sell you short.
Buffalo's hands were further tied by the fact that Hasek let it be known that he would retire if he thought the team trading for him was giving up much. Basically, Hasek threatened to retire and give Buffalo nothing, unless Buffalo knowingly got screwed in the deal.
