There is no way we should trade him, unless he specifically asks to be moved, not if management "asks" him to. We aren't (at least I hope we aren't) a classless piece of **** team that lowballs players, especially high-profile ones, who chose to come play for us. The guy has been extra-ordinary for us leadership-wise and quite frankly that's been a breath of fresh air for this team. On the ice I think at the beginning of the season he exceeded expectations with a very HIGH level of play, which makes the drop-off more noticable. The man is a class act, no way should we screw him over by moving him, even if in the long run it helps the team. It may be naive, but I for one, still believe in old fashioned things like loyalty. I just wish this sport wouldn't be just a business with no consideration for other things that are just as important, like said loyalty, heritage and knowing that there is life off the ice as well as on.
