Lots of players get traded. But no one could possibly know how Ladislav Smid feels, being traded from the Edmonton Oilers to the dastardly Calgary Flames.
Well, except for one guy. And one guy only.
Steve Staios did the inaugural north-to-south transfer when he was shipped to the Flames at the 2010 deadline.

Edmonton Oilers’ blueliner Ladislav Smid has never been about numbers–certainly not goals and assists, rifling a puck past goalie Cory Schneider Saturday night, his first goal in a calendar year–but dollars and cents is another story.
