Did not report to the NY Islanders' training camp and demanded to renegotiate his contract. Still reported to the team, without a new contract, in time for the first game of the season. GM Bill Torrey waited until January 1986 to negotiate a new 3-year contract at $435,000 per season and then traded him to Calgary 2 months later.
