He would have needed a team willing to give up assets to acquire him....that wasn't happening.

Every NHL GM knew he was going UFA and wouldn't give up **** for him, if they even wanted him at all...which is obviously not the case from his underwhelming interest this offseason.

Mafki should have traded him years ago after the Montreal debacle...but he didn't...and Im just glad he didn't sign him for another year of Sasha.

Its over.
