1. You don't want to be traded, don't go out boozing and causing a distraction
2. You don't want to be traded, try hitting the net
3. You don't want to be traded, try bringing something to the rink that makes it hard to trade you away
4. You don't want to be traded, don't play in the NHL.
This is a business. Everyone is in it to win it. Trades happen.
I lost no respect for the Flyers when they made that move, it took balls to do it. They felt it was better for the club to go in a different direction. Obviously something occured to bring that to light. If you think the club signed him to an 11 year deal with the immediate intention of shipping him out, you're ignorant.
Things happen, bounces don't always go your way. Thats hockey.
Edited to say that I also feel bad for him, but I don't blame the organization, how can you when you hear about all the stories, which are widely believed to be accurate?
