'Cause people could say he's tradeable due to not making a lot of money, yet, some will be hesitant considering the number of years left. As of now, let's hope we fix him up. But it's not looking that good RIGHT NOW. Yet, things can change.
Certainly. But he joined a team that had a lot of struggling players and Plekanec was one of them.
I find it tough to really explain the woes of our team this year. It's just a weird year.
I thought Bourque had a couple of good games after his trade, which is usual after a trade, but since then has been pretty quiet. I can only hope for the best, but yes, it isn't look good so far.

But one thing I just don't understand is giving him defensive duties. That, I will never understand.

If he was working hard and things just didnt work id believe that. Its hard to use the chemistry excuse when the guy is barely trying out there.
That's very possible. There's got to be a reason why this is his 3rd team already.
But it must be tough to join one of the worst teams in the NHL at mid point through the year.
I'm hoping for the best next year.
