The guy is a loser who has at least 6 suspensions related to head contact and still doesn’t get it.

No thanks
The other thing is he's now two years older. I don't know that he fits the age range this team should be targeting now.

Gio was noticeably better under Sutter

Or maybe he was just noticeably worse under Ward because his stretch of declining play correlates pretty well with Ward’s tenure as coach.

It’s also important to note that essentially everyone paired with Rasmus performed worse (he had a nightmare season) and everyone paired with Tanev played amazing

It was shared here sometime in his first season with Colorado that he said he vetoed the trade because he didn't want to leave Toronto. He thought it was a one time scenario and wasn't told that they were going to trade him to another team.

He is an idiot then but that seems likely considering his track record.

I don't get the desire the stay with a team that obviously wants to move you

Don't forget it was Kadri and Brown

“What happened is they had a deal in place and they wanted me to move my no-trade clause,” Kadri explained on the podcast. “Obviously, for me, it was no disrespect to Calgary or the Flames organization — I love their team and I love the direction they’re headed. I just figured that had I declined, I would have had a better opportunity of being a Maple Leaf next year, and that’s really what it came down to.

“I wanted to play for the Leafs next year. I wanted to be a part of that. In declining that trade, I had aspirations of being a Leaf, and we know clearly that didn’t happen.”

Looks like Dougie might be headed for his fourth team since 2015:

Looks like Dougie is probably going to Washington (highest museums per capita):

To its credit, D.C. blows every state out of the water when it comes to the number of museums and related institutions per square mile. And no other state comes close to the absolute number – more than 2,900
