Trades that hurt your team PSYCHOLOGICALLY

Trades that your team made that while seemed to makes sense from a management standpoint really hurt the psyche or heart of the team.

I guess for the AVS, it was Simon , I still wonder if he had been in the lineup for that Fight Night game in DET. He probably would have killed someone. The trade made even less sense in that they ended up drafting Scott Parker with the pick they got from WSH. Who really did nothing while Simon went to the finals with WSH and had a 29 goal year. Maybe he just needed time to fine tune his game. It would have been interesting to see if could have put it together in COL and been that power forward that team desperately tried to have. And still tries to have to this day.
Another for me is Drury and Yelle, I understand wanting to acquire a top young dman in Morris but the attitude of the team changed after that.

When we traded Mark Tinordi to the Capitals back in 1994, it brought a little more offense but a huge void was left in the leadership and character depts.

Devils trading Claude Lemieux away after won the Smythe in 1995 was a huge psychological blow to the team. Missed the playoffs in 1995-96 (granted, they would have been a 4th seed in the West; but they were still barely over 0.500) and had several years of choking in the playoffs afterwards before finally trading to get him back.

Habs trading Chris Nilan in 1988. The Habs became a little less braver after that trade.

Not suprising the the Bruins finally ended their long drought against the Habs that season's playoff, despite the Habs having a slightly more talented team.

Habs trading Roy in 1995. I don't think they ever got over that.

Trading Hossa for Heatley in 2005. Yes Heatley gave Ottawa a better scoring threat but Hossa was and still is the better all around player/

Isles trading Turgeon to the Habs really hurt.

Habs losing Vincent Damphousse. People talk about Roy but Habs were still a pretty good team after Roy left. They had Vinny, they had Turgeon, Recchi, Saku, etc...but when Vincent left it was the last guy from the 93 cup and the guy was not finished he continued having good years with San Jose. He was still a leader, still had talent and they traded him it felt like they gave up.

TO are not not my team but I figure losing a heart and soul guy like Wendel Clark was big.

For the Quebec Nordiques it was losing Dale Hunter. They lost Stastny and Goulet but losing Hunter, they lost their soul and never recovered. When Hunter was traded, Hunter's father was running after Nords' president Marcel Aubut in the arena to strangle him.

The original Ryan Smyth trade back in 2007. They could never replace his intangibles that he brought to the team.

Avs trading Nieminen for Kasparitis. Nemo played with an intensity and fearless style that the team never seemed to replace and lacked severly esp against DET. Nemo went on to have a decent playoff run with CGY in 04

Of course. They traded a fan favorite for a guy who didn't want to be here. It must have killed the team.

Trade deadline day in 1995. The Canucks traded away some players, including the popular Greg Adams. They went out that night in Winnipeg and gave up four shorthanded goals.

The Avs have had quite a few.

I think trading Morris after the Moore incident was a huge mistake, he was one of the most emotional guys about it and seemed to genuinely care about the team. Trading him, and also a bunch of the other trade made that trade deadline really killed the team IMO, just too many changes, too late into the season.

You got your revenge on Washington when we traded you Konowalchuck, that was the beginning of the end of the Jagr era, when the Captain asks for a trade, and the team never really recovered that season.

Ha! good point. What a bizarre period of time for the Caps. Didnt Jagr get like 6 pts in his first game for WSH then it seemed to fall off after that. But yeah Kono was great for COL.
