Traded to Nashville by NY Islanders for Nashville's 4th round choice (Johan Halvardsson) in 1999 Entry Draft, April 14, 1999. Traded to Dallas by Nashvlle with future considerations for Jon Sim, February 17, 2003. Suspended by Dallas for violating terms of contract, December 3, 2003.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
