It's difficult to continue to pledge your loyalty, time and money to owners\management that isn't willing to match that commitment.
Seriously? St. Louis traded Pronger and did fine without him. What about Boston and trading Thornton?

That is what teams do... You replace your super-star with 4 GREAT players. It makes your team deeper. That way, we can replace Ward with a player like Dubinsky or Wolski. Not only that, who is to say Ellis, Josi, Ekholm, Blum, etc all won't become superstars??? We can't pay ALL of those dmen plus Weber and Suter. If we have to lose one of those 6, you are telling me that it is the end of the world??? No... It isn't.
