Also, the passivity that permeates most, not all, the drafted players I find alarming.

I guess the real question I have is, what role did and does Gorton have with regards to the players we target at the Drafts?

I see people talk about Gorton's role is how the Bruins look today and think to myself that we are a long ways off from being as physically stubborn as they are. Talent match up may be even, but they have a group of players that get after the game and don't give a frickin inch.

We are nothing like that. So if Gorton has had a big hand in formulating this current team, then I'm not sure I trust him as the GM of this team. Seems like we are going to see more of the same passive personalities getting drafted.

I'd hate that.

McIlrath, Miller, Kreider aren't small or soft. Let's give them more then a half season to develop in the NHL before damning them as "passive personalities".

Gorton was responsible for bringing to Boston Chara, Rask, Lucic, Marchand, Seguin, Hamilton...

You would be the only one not feeling comfortable with Gorton.
