Of course a team always can correct a mistake like losing a good player for basically nothing , but it's frustrating none-the-less as Lapierre was a fan favorite like it or not and you don't dump playoff warrors for players like Tommy Pyatt.

Anyway , just another reason out of the millions I have to hate Jacque Martin since the day he entered the NHL.Never would've I thought he was going to be our coach one day.Sad era.
Lapierre played top 6 winger that year for some time. He played 76 games and played one more game than Pyatt did in the playoffs.

Martin clearly didn't dislike Lapierre. Lappy played himself out of his spot. Can't believe how easily the JM hate turns people into ignorant whiners. What a joke.
