I'm not a Dale fan but let's look at this logically and not blow things out of proportion.

What has Peter Smrek become? Nothing. The Rangers got him for Alexander Gusarov. That should say something. And do you know how many games Smrek played in the NHL after he left the Rangers? Zero (0). So let's not mourn the loss of Peter Smrek.

There was never a decision to play Purinton over Zidlicky. Zidlicky would not come unless he was given a one way contract. And Sather was not going to do that. So there was never a situation where the Rangers decided to play Purinton over Zidlicky.

Kill Dale all you want, but let's not create situations to kill him over.
