“Trade(ing)” Stories

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

“As great a life as this is, there are some tough parts and being told you’re traded is one of them.”
Wayne Primeau was told after the Bruins tilt Saturday he would be playing for Calgary less than 24 hours later.
“My five-and-a-half-year-old son was sleeping when I got home and was still sleeping when I got up so I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye—that sucks,” he said.
As bad as that was, Primeau said it was even tougher being traded from San Jose last year as part of the Joe Thornton deal when he was informed in the coach’s office after pre-game warmup.
