It is a shame we lost such a potentially terrific player. It was NOT management's fault. Sometimes we fans (and especially the damned media) need to stand up and accept our share of the responsibility for things that happen to our team.
??? Maybe some fans. A minority. Not the media.

When you have a big horse like that, a RH d-man on top of that, you keep him even if he plays on the 3rd pairing.

Nothing against Bournival, but a big strong d-man is more important than a potential frail 3rd line center/winger.

... And it was obviously management's fault... Like the K Bros, Latendresse, Lapierre.....
