Because our only local paper doesn't have the ba!!s to stand up to Jim Rutherford's bullying and empty threats. Or they don't have the talent.

But as for Westgarth, I'm going to defend Forslund here. Westgarth doesn't have the option to go with Lucic. If Westgarth wanted to dance last night, Scott Thornton would have obliged, but there's no way the Bruins are trading a key player like Lucic for Westgarth. Gleason knows this, Muller knows this, Westgarth knows this, hell, everybody knows this.

If the Canes want to take a shot at Lucic, it's going to have to be Gleason (or another high-minutes guy). Tim knew this and made the decision.
