In Bonsignore's defence:

He said at least twice during the interview that his failed career wasn't simply the Oilers fault; and that alot of it was his own fault.

He said that he enjoyed the fans in Edmonton, called them great/knowledgable.

He apologized to the Oilers org and their fans for not being what they wanted him to be

I thought Bonsignore showed alot of dignity by talking about this episode in his life. Did he sound bitter at times? Sure, but who wouldn't? He was supposed to be a great NHL'er and instead barely played in the big leagues and is going down in history as a bust. That has to hurt.

I'm sure his version of the events aren't the exact truth, anymore than Sather's version would be the exact truth.
But I do believe that he felt he was treated poorly by Sather.

He was open and honest and spoke from the heart. Good for him.
I wish him well.
