The Bruins came out of the lockout with a clean slate and over $20 million to fill a custom roster with in the biggest FA pool ever. He came out with a horrendous defense for the first two months of the year and had to trade Scatchard, one of their only offensive contributors, for a defenseman in Tanabe, who has been terrible while paired with Leetch. Then the team still sucked, so he had to trade Thornton for Stuart, Sturm, and Primeau. Some argue he could've gotten more, but let me tell you, without those three players, the Bruins would be down with Washington and St. Louis now. They still stuck around .500 for a while, and were falling out of the race, so he could either go for a run and make the playoffs or completely sell for young talent, and what he does is keep the overpaid underacheivers in Murray and Leetch, but trades a relatively cheap UFA in Samsonov for a 29 year old borderline 4th liner and a prospect we already gave away for Isbister... This has to be one of the biggest butcher jobs in NHL history, right?
