Nothing like just a little more spit in the eye on his way out the door eh.

And now, there's the more recent Russian articles with him badmouthing the Wings, Bowman and many of his teammates.
At the same time, this is a different era where players leaving teams is much more acceptable. But I agree, Fedorov was a bit of ******* in the way he handled things. Just, let us not pretend that leaving as an UFA now is the same thing as leaving a team in the O6 era.

Actually, my grandson went through some old magazines he had and showed me an article about the Roenick trade. Bobby Hull made a big point about how players were loyal to their teams back then while now its all about the money.

On a side note. Just think that Wirtz interfered with the Hawks - Blues trade. According to the article Blues offered Hull, Corson and another player for Roenick but Wirtz said no due to the history with Bobby Hull.
