I'm probably with you on this one. If MB really had to handcuff MT in order to get the right players on the ice, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have extended him for 4 years, or whatever it was.

*Disclaimer: this is not a slam at MT the coach, but at MT the broadcaster* He's obviously following the patented "Michel Therrien Program for Getting Rehired as a Coach", which includes picking a player on the team you are covering and picking apart every part of their game, right down to how they tie their skates. That way, once you get hired to coach said player(s), you can speak to how well you know their game.

So it may have been already mentioned, but one aspect I see as being a part of this trade is MB showing respect to a veteran and finding him a new home, instead of parking him in the press box or the minors. I believe that the general opinion around the league is that the Canadiens are once again acting as a class organization, and that this might be an extension of that initiative. As for Bourque, it may be that they hope he can turn things around, or that they exhausted all other options before sending him down. I don't think we can look at the two transactions as being on equal terms. Just my musings of the morning.

That's kind of my point. Take the Senators as an example. Every time Spezza went down with an injury in the last few years, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth (at least from the dudes in the papers and on the radio) about where their scoring would come from. Now, compare that to their actual record with him out of the line-up; according to stats from last January, over the previous season and a hlaf, they were 25-16-4 with him gone and 18-19-8 with him playing. And then there's this year. They have actually been better off without him. I don't want Boston to figure out that they could maybe play a speedier but still aggressive game (think LA or Chicago) and be competitive. Stay as barbarians, we know how to beat that.

I'm actually concerned by this. I would rather the B's continue to rely on an aging, lumbering Dman to be their core player. The last thing I want is for them to learn to play without him. Unless they really suck. I'm down with that.

He needs to speak to Pacioretty and teach him how to drive the net.

They're being sent down during a quiet few days to take salary off the cap. Every penny counts come deadline time. These guys can be shuttled back and forth with no waiver worries so why not?

Corner Gas is no longer on the air. And it was on CTV.

That's been locked-down as well... ;-)

The reins have been loosened, he trained well in the offseason and is playing like a beast. No rush to move him to centre.
