That's the thing, all of our best players and best personalities have had problems with the guy. He's past retirement age and stuck in his ways. Doesn't want to buy into the team system. Nice enough guy off the ice, but things don't go his way, he'll start calling everyone out. We've had to arrange lines around him because he won't come back on defense or play his position, flies the zone early, tries to cherry pick, and then has personal conflicts with several guys.

So honestly, when he left, everyone just shrugged and we moved on. He's got a knack for scoring some clutch goals, but we have a lot better players who are dying for a shot.

It will be interesting to see how it shakes out. We've now replaced 2-3 players who were below the talent level of our division with guys who should be quality players. Our team has gotten bigger, stronger, and more skilled. Hopefully we can be competitive again rather than trying to stay out of last place.

Oh yeah, of course the second most of us walk in the room, we just start ragging on each other. Part of being a team, right?
