Thanks for your question. If we are discussing the effect on a player who is waived, then the bottom line is that he was worth zero return in a trade to the club. Therefore, the hit to the ego is also connected with how much you are "valued" in the return on a trade. If Gagné netted – for argument's sake only – Hedman and a 1st, then wouldn't he think that both Holmgren and Yzerman valued him a lot? To me, having been traded for a marginal defenseman and a 4th-round pick shows that Holmgren and/or Yzerman's valuation of him was that low.
