If Sheldon Souray made it known long ago that he wants a trade, and management made it known long ago that they’ll do everything they can to accommodate him, why the venomous stone-throwing when all it does is make things harder. And uglier?
Souray Slams Oilers management
That's why we get the whining,the high ticket prices and half-assed hockey.
Remember what the Swiss rec hockey team did to our millionaires in the Olympics?
Brian Burke should have fired the entire Leaf team and hired them on the spot. They might have made the playoffs.
But that isn't how the old boys club is run.
General managers never make mistakes and if they ever were to,the players and reporters are supposed to keep quiet about it.
It's the code of the NHL.
Souray is as good as gone. His outburst will be the excuse because no GM is going to admit he screwed up and no reporter that wants in the dressing room will ever say he did.

It seems the more they make, the more they whine.
While the family guy has to just about sell a kidney to bring his family to a game:
the poor abused, underpaid, player who can't succeed in adding a Stanley Cup to his
resumé because the team overpaid for his services and thus didn't have more $$$ to fill the holes ; sits and whines.
Sheldon Souray, I,ve got two words for you:
SHUT UP !

By any chance, did Souray tell you something you didn't like? Players are "told" to suck-it-up all of the time. So...it didn't happen to other players, that you so conveniently "quoted". It don't mean squat about what has happened to Souray.

Too many NHL players feel a right to entitlement. They have contracts that they dishonour just by going public against management. Suspend the clown! Let him sit at home. Playing for $Millions is simply not enough. Now Souray wants to behave like he's a tennis player who picks and chooses where and when he'll play.

Run by idiots, for idiots
