Even Bourque was playing well. Eller has improved a lot.
PK's even better than he was last year
Seriously... what can you say that's been bad? We've still got too many smurfs and the team has been pushed around in a couple of games but that's about it.
I like what Bergevin has done. I wasn't a fan of how he treated Subban but otherwise he's done well in working to change the culture.
Same with MT who seems to have done a pretty good job overall.
I don't even want to think about what it would be like if Roy and McGuire were ruining (sorry I mean running) the show...
I agreed with you about MT and Subban. At the time, I thought they should have locked PK up now with a healthy, long-term contract which would have saved money over the long run. But there's a valid counter-argument that Bergevin gained considerable respect from the other players and fellow GMs by standing tough. That's part of the culture change. What the hell do I know - it worked thus far. Let's watch and judge the next few moves.
As to Roy - that was never a question in my mind. A huge, emphatic, gut-busting, organ-exploding NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Thank goodness....
