It wasn't his job to protect players. He protected himself and his career. That's what every other single player in the league does. They look out for #1, themselves.

He wasn't willing to toil in mediocrity as a player and I'd take a player like that anyday of the week over someone who is happy with not having a real chance to win the cup.

If you look at the end of Roy's playing career, he also quit on the Avs because HIM being mediocre wasn't good enough for him. He could easily have played 3-4 more years but if he couldn't dominate on his own, then he wasn't good enough to be a winner.

Those are the kinds of players that win.
