I mentioned in the thread on the main board, Hunter was a total pro about the whole thing. He hadn't been in the AHL in a decade and had career earnings of over 12 million dollars but still went down there and honored his contract and played.

Moreau was just unprofessional about the entire thing, the guy should have been happy he sucked anyone into giving him a guaranteed 500k considering he was done as an NHL player in 2010.
the ironic thing about Ethan is he was signed to provide veteran leadership and depth. how he handled the demotion and subsequent butt hurt was the opposite of what DL thought he was getting. he could have gone to MAN (just like Hunter) and shared his experience and leadership to an even younger group of players with hopes of the NHL. he could have left the league (as a player) by instilling professionalism to a new crop of guys, instead he showed how to be ungrateful to a team giving him one last chance.
