Why he did it is irrelevant. There was no valid excuse to dump Koivu and move valuable assets for one of the worst contracts in the league. While this is pure conjecture, I have long believed Gainey panicked following the horrendous centennial season and blew up the core in order to save his job. His early departure in December, when the new era managed to perform worse, only adds credence to the theory.
