Brilliant!

Typical of Habs fans to have blinders on for anything other than how a player did as a Hab. Obviously he must have been useful and motivated in calgary so have the coaching staff challenge him.

Even in the worst case scenario where both players are useless, a 7.35 mil contract hurts the cap MUCH worse than a 3.3 mil cap hit.
Physical attributes don't mean much when you're as soft as butter, and mentally not ready to compete.

Sorry, Calgary had this guy on the block forever with the only taker being one of the most incompetent hockey execs in the teams history. Hrudey made him a weekly lowlight reel with video clips that make you wonder why he's in the NHL.

Bourque had his new start when he came to Montreal. He got no better. He blew it.

Just not the type of player a coach or teamates want around, he'd be better off in another jersey.
