Cam was a king, then turned into a bum a year later. Same thing is happening with Cole. People will sour on Bourque again...and question the "pieces" we got in the deal.

Happy that Cam is playing some good hockey.
It's very easy to see why Cammy was disliked. He pouted and acted like a baby after Gio was named captain. It's great that he had a monster playoff for us, but what he did the 2 years after also matter. Hard to keep a guy around with a bad attitude and poor production.

I do agree that fans overreact. Given his production, attitude and cap hit, moving Cammy was a no brainer and I'd venture to guess that no other team's offer was that close, he had history in Calgary and they were desperate.

They will miss the playoffs again this year so his past playoffs mean nothing.
