Boston is on the verge of some tough times. I don't understand what they are doing at all. I get that they have to shed salary, but why Hamilton? I mean, good for us that Boston becomes a weaker team. But I guess firing their previous GM did nothing to change trading away their youth.
No s***. Just take the guy to arbitration, get him signed to a reasonable bridge deal, and shed whatever salary (Chara, Lucic, Eriksson) necessary to keep him around. I don't really get it either. They hamstrung themselves on the return the minute the chose to move him as opposed to a half dozen other cap killers on their s***ty roster.
On the plus side, somewhere in Beantown Jack Edwards is rocking back and forth while crying gently to himself.
