I thought Sykora really liked new york and hated leaving, thus waiting till the last moment to go to Edmonton? I'm pretty sure he was just asking too much money. It was bull IMO really, some argue he wouldn't have fit in, I still think he produced more than anyone near the end of the season when he was the only one shooting and even coming close. He hit like 6+ posts in the playoffs.

I do remember Sykora saying something now that I think about it...i cant remember if it was bad though. Thats gonna bug me.

Shame though, he was one of my favs, still is.
