Requesting a trade? What a prima donna. He's on a team that's on the upswing and cries about not being on the big club. How about working your butt off and improving your game. Sheesh, good riddance. We have enough 3rd liners as it is, so no big loss.
Well, not happy to see him go but glad to see him go if he didn't want to be here! Felt like he still had a shot at making it if he had just put in more effort but at this point he's turned into Grabner 2.0 in the sense that he doesn't like to put in the effort. I just hope he doesn't pull a Grabner in terms of scoring.
I have heard good things from Lidstrom and hope he pans out. At the very least he seems to be very good defensively and could help us in the future with the big frame he has.
