Question by Alex: Adieu Le Toux! What do you guys think of the Le Toux trade to Vancouver?
As a die hard Union fan I strongly lament our loss and feel strong distaste for the Union management, but I want to be able too look at the issue from a non biased viewpoint. One one hand, I firmly believe that our star player should not be disrespected in such a manner to the point where he “would be happy to just retire than play for Peter again”, but on the other hand, his salary demand was unreasonable and his early leave of Bolton was a little suspicious. So who do you think is right?

I’m a Galaxy fan, but I think the trade is good for both sides.
The trade will be good for LeToux as a player. He’ll be in a more comfortable environment with another good forward (Hassli) by his side.
Vermes runs a more defense-oriented system, so LeToux is not necessarily relevant there; and the allocation money will probably help them swing another trade for someone that fits in the system better.
As a Galaxy fan, I can definitely say that I look forward to seeing LA and Vancouver play because that will be a shootout of a game!
