Mats Sundin mentioned in Swedish radio this summer that he felt almost betrayed by the Toronto management when they came back and asked him to waive his NMC after he had said no the first time. He felt that after all the time and all he had done for the team they should have shown more respect for his decision instead of pressuring him.
I'm not saying that Gagné had similar feelings, but it must be tough to play for the same team for so long, thinking that you're secure with your contract clause and then being asked repeatedly to accept a trade regardless.
