The day he was traded was my worst day as a Blues fan. Worse than the MacInnis eye injury, the day we lost Stevens, the Yzerman double OT goal in game 7, losing Hull, the Gilmour fiasco, the Brind'Amour trade, the Butcher/Quinn trade, etc.
Trading a defenseman in his prime who was a lock for the HHoF for nothing...simply to move the money so the franchise could be more easily sold. That was a dark, dark day for me.
