Well, I was a little surprised by this one, but whatever. The thing I keep telling myself is that the management team has all the info and I don't. If a kid has conditioning issues, or a bad attitude, or doesn't get along in the lockerroom, or likes the nightlife too much, it doesn't show up on the scoresheet and I can't tell by watching 30 second youtube clips. These guys know the players better than we ever will. For us to dump a kid like Bourret means either they had a problem with something about him that they didn't see him fixing, or that somebody in the organization moved past him on the depth chart. For them to drop him with our upcoming roster uncertainty, I'm leaning toward the former more than the latter. Getting a high ranked Euro in return is okay by me because I thihnk our Euro scouting is one of the stronger points of our staff.
