I know the facts. I wouldn't portray Cammy as God either...

The whole premise was wrongheaded. Even if say Bourque was as good as Cammy... who cares? I mean seriously why are we trading for this guy? He's a 30 year old problem child who isn't going to help us 'win it now' so why are we trading for him when we were so far out of a playoff spot? It was a horrific misallocation of assets.

If you're not getting a good prospect or at least a 1st rounder, don't trade the guy. And definitely don't do it for another vet with a bad reputation for not caring about anything. Esp when this clown has a longer contract.

Get used to it? Seriously? That might be what Bubba says to his slave up in Cell Block 6B and maybe that guy doesn't have a choice but we can fire our GM. PGs the common slave of the entire cell block and we're getting rag dolled all the time. Enough with the brutality already, somebody put him in solitary confinement.

I am madder at the AK trade, when Buffalo got a 1st for ****ing gaustad, and we got only a 2nd (in 2013...)... This one I hate.
Both were dumb and nobody wants Bourque. We could've packaged Cammy AND AK together to get something good. But then Bubba would be upset so...
