Who really cares at this point? In reality, he did the Kings a favor because they were able to sign Gagne with the CAP space he freed and I'd much rather have Gagne than Smyth even though Gagne is out with an undisclosed injury at this time.

I am glad to see this as a follow up to the interview I saw.

Edit: I knew about the being closer to home. The slew of **** that has accompanied this trade has made the tea bitter just a touch. That is tambos fault first and foremost though.
