this thread is a hoot. hamrlik's play disappointed many who wanted him gone from almost the get go. now that he is on waivers mcphee is messing up. that the rangers took a player that so many thinks sucks horribly its further proof that mcphee sucks.
speaking of....yes, older players often leave angry. knuble said that they would have to rip the uniform off of him before he would retire. those players are never happy when they lose their spot. detroit didnt want him either after bringing him in. kolzig and callejo and bondra were mentioned as angry when leaving and treated badly. oates demanded a trade when bringing in linden upset him. so he left angry.
but look where they are now?? back working for george. kolzig as a part timer. callejo as an assistant coach. bondra doing autographs. are you sure they were really that angry?
halpern didnt leave angry the first time. nor did witt. they left with the idea that the caps would not be competitive in the near term and in halpern's case he was offered a long term contract that everyone here said would have been a bad move for the caps to match anyway.
hannan left because he wanted a long term contract mcphee wouldnt offer. a contract it turned out that no nhl gm would offer. after a season in calgary and returning to the ufa market again no nhl team was offering a multi year deal and he signed a second cheap one year contract. so...mcphee scapegoated hime?? was he the scapegoat in calgary too?
