@carylev Interesting take on things. It's not a case of siding with owner vs player but in siding on what's best for the team. You have major stars like Tom Brady (ugh) taking pay cuts/restructuring contracts to help improve the team around them and then you have Cally asking for a shockingly high amount and not accepting a MORE than reasonable offer to stay with the team he wore the C for. It's not hard to see why this rubbed NYR fans the wrong way.
That said, I 1000000% agree that he shouldn't be booed regardless of who he winds up playing for. He did so much for this team & that's what we should remember....however as much as I love the man, the selfishness he showed in his contract demands will definitely taint the legacy he left with NYR for me.

@Chris M You would have rather wasted the opportunity to immediately acquire a guy who had 10 more goals than anyone else on the NYR team at that point? When NYR's biggest issue was (as always) offense?
I love me some Cally and will cheer him in his returns to the Garden no matter what colors he is wearing but I love NYR more and see no reason Sather shouldn't have made the move he made.
@KevinTheNYRBlog @JoshKaye Perfect. I can just see it tonight - Nash finally getting dirty in front of the net all game and then BOOM one of our own guys hits him with a slapper. And icing on the cake when Marty tweaks something celebrating his 1st goal.

... while I appreciate Stepan and St.
Louis sucking it up tonight, they had no business being on the ice.
Could have easily cost them.
With the way St. Louis left TB and his lack of goals so far he had to give it a go tonight. Sitting out a big game with those things fresh in people's minds might get him a reputation of being soft with the home town crowd. Not how you want to start in a new city, especially after replacing Cally who is the grittiest mf'er we know.
And if MSL went, you know Step had to be out there!
