HF has a terrible tendency to look way too far term when the cup is within your reach. Boston knew what they had in Colborne.
as a Bruin fan i would not change a thing PC did to get us that cup, but i would be surprised if they thought he was going to be producing like this so soon after trading him. we have great center depth and he had no spot in Boston, but i for one am surprised to see the numbers he is putting up in the AHL right now.
