I had two reasons for him being a ******.

His quote about Team Sweden, then what exactly is the second? Having the audacity to leave the Wings and seek out a team that had the cap room to pay what he was worth and where he could play a more prominent role?

To me that doesn't make him a ******, especially because he was very upfront about why he signed with Vancouver.

I don't hate Samuelsson, just like I don't hate Hossa or Kopecky. The idea that you root for these guys as Wings and then suddenly they're complete garbage the day they choose or are forced to put on a different sweater is kinda fraudulent to me.

Sammy's comment wasn't arrogant or angry. He simply welcomed the matchup (what's he supposed to say?)

To his credit, you can think of a long list of former Red Wings (from Lapointe to Fedorov and beyond) who thought that they might be more productive playing a bigger role on a different team, but Sammy actually proved his point this year. I'm sure he hasn't forgotten that we revived his career, like we did for Cleary and countless others.

Good post, Well said. Nothing of note here folks....move along.

Welcome to the playoffs....where the games get better and the officiating gets worse.

Sammy was always the problem and the solution here. He would always screw something up, but make up for it by scoring a big goal. I wish he was still here.

It'd be funny if we play them and he and Franzen get into a slapping contest at center ice.
