The only time GM's in hockey are fine with a player not wanting to play in the NHL immediately is when they are going to college. Otherwise, your love for NHL level hockey should be more than what team you play for.

That said, I hope more players reject playing in Phoenix and they move the team due to it.

As much as i like that hit, it would've been fun watching them on the same line in montreal. Oh well. For 2 weeks I liked Wheeler, now, I gotta prepare to hate him.

I'm sorry I never see Lucic as a 30 goal or more guy... ever.
People also said he'd be nothing more than a fourth liner when he was drafted. At the age of 19, he was top 9 forward for the Bruins, getting a lot of ice time as the season progressed. Just like Bergeron, I think he'll surprise a lot of people.

I think Lucic will be a very valuable player for the Bruins... but I see him more in the good second liner/elite third liner mold than in the first line winger category; thats all...

I really don't think he's the second coming of Cam Neely as many bruins fans have suggested.

Firstly: you drink too much.

Secondly: Patrice Bergeron is the B's next Captain by a mile before Loosey Goosey!!

Possibly, but Mark Stuart is also a candidate for that. He's a born leader.
