Here are some of the reactions from when Purcell was traded:

Quote:
Purcell going the other way seems like an overpayment . I am thinking a 4th/5th rounder sounds about right. But i am speculating...
Quote:
How is Purcell an overpayment? Purcell is crap
Quote:
Ugh... Purcell AND a 3rd?!b
Quote:
Ahhhh. Finally. CYA PURCELL.
Quote:
No more whipping boy.
Quote:
Ehh Purcell and a 3rd little steep but not to much...
Quote:
Purcell and a 3rd, I think that's overpayment personally
Quote:
Very cool. I won't miss Purcell or the 3rd.
Quote:
Purcell was basically done here so I guess its nice to give him a shot with another team.
Quote:
Bye Purcell, I for one. . will not miss you.
Quote:
This. I have not hated a player so much since Labarbera.
Quote:
That's a lot to give up..Geez...they even said that on Toronto radio. Florida pick is a high 2nd...
Quote:
Seems like overpayment to me. But who am I kidding? Purcell won't be missed.

Best of luck finding your game Teddy. Wish you'd have broken out with us, but best of luck in the future.

3rd rounder is a bit high, but when your cupboards already STOCKED, who cares?
Quote:
Great deal, they had extra 3rd, and Purcell was useless.
Quote:
Cya Teddy......thanks for nothing.
Quote:
Great deal! This is exactly why you accumulate spare parts, and exactly what you do with them.
Quote:
Purcell is basically a throw-in. Sort of like Lundmark in the Conroy trade a few years ago. Getting rid of Purcell opens up a spot on the Kings, and someone had to take Halpern's spot in Tampa.

Summary: All this crap about "giving" up Moulson and Purcell is complete revisionist history. No one was saying what a terrible mistake the Kings were making in how they were giving up two future 60 point scorers. Most people were happy to see them go. Let's stop pretending like everyone and their father knew letting Moulson and Purcell go was a big deal.
