I don't mean to take anything away from the great games he had as a Hab, and his great playoff, I'm thankful for that.. but the backlash of that trade was equal parts uneducated fans blindly loving Cammalleri because CBC told them to, Gauthier's bizarro unprofessionalism, and Bourque's bad season (which could be for many reasons unknown to fans). Remember Bourque outscored Cammalleri in the three years leading up to the deal.
Easy with the Cammy bashing...

I don't think anyone on the Habs is capable of taking down the Caps and Pens with a dozen clutch goals.

That 2010 run was amazing on Cam's part (and Halak, of course).

Actually, The Caps have never really recovered.
