Say it, and you can close the thread
Fletcher traded Leddy along with Kim Johnsson (a pending UFA) in one of 2-3 trades in his first season that tried to do quick fixes. At the time Minnesota had 3 of their 4 prospects be D-men (Cuma, Scandella and Leddy) and an on his way out Tommy Thompson, who was big in drafting Leddy (was Fletcher's first dradt), for some reason threw the U and Lucia under the bus. Honestly in my opinion that was stupider than trading a Minnesota-born player.
And I think we're good regardless if you're trolling or not. Closed.
