Traded to Dallas by New Jersey with future considerations for Valeri Kamensky, January 16, 2002. Signed as a free agent by Columbus, July 7, 2004. Signed as a free agent by Salzburg (Austria), May 5, 2005. Signed as a free agent by Minnesota, June 16, 2007.
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.
