Sorry but as I have made plain I don't go for the double standard of one set of rules for the stars and another set of rules for the muckers. If Steve Kasper had dressed/benched/refused to play a third liner that game instead of the immortal Cam Neely nobody would have given a damn. But future HHOFer Cam Neely...why the nerve of that idiot Kasper!
So you don't think there's a difference between a healthy scratch (which would send a message) vs. the manner in which Kasper "benched" Neely? An athlete who had given all Neely gave to the organization doesn't deserve a small amount of respect from his coach? At some level its beyond coaching and extends to basic human decency and respect.

Sorry, Kasper, who I liked as a player (and Cam did as well, wearing a taped "11" on his sleeve at practice when he was traded) showed himself that day to be a coach who lacked all sense of perspective and propriety. He might as well have hung out a sign that said, "I have no clue what I'm doing." As if it wasn't clear enough then, he was never hired as a coach again and had the good sense to know he wasn't coaching material and ran off with his tail betwixt his legs.

Unfortunately he isn't the first athlete to try to hang on when he should have hung them up and he won't be the last.
At the end of the day, the worst thing you can say about Cam is that he tried too hard and gave too much. Yeah, shame on him.

Love ya, Beems, but your way off this one, in my (perhaps not so) humble opinion.

Well the Bruins didn't underrate him -- starting October he'll be making $250K more per year than Bergeron.

I haven't read the posts but money aside Krejci should be front and center going by this board- he's in every trade and all he did was turn in a fantastic playoff performance in the Cup run.

my most underrated Bruins

Barry Pederson
Dallas Smith
Don Marcotte
Dave Taylor
Chris Kelly

DKH- Do you mean Tim Taylor?

I have actually been waiting for him to come up in this thread because I can hardly remember us missing a third line player so badly right after he left for Tampa.

He wouldn't make my list based on longevity but man o man there was a gaping hole at 3rd line center when he went. I think before the lockout the third lines weren't expected to produce as much offense as today. (The second and third lines have similar expectations nowadays where it used to be 2 scoring ones, a "checking" line, and a 4th line of rarely used punching bags.) Back in 1998 Tim Taylor was the definition of what a third line center was supposed to be.

Axellson-Taylor-Dimao was a great line.

Wow, The coach should have, just not dressed him what he did was a joke.Cam Neely was no rookie and no Mark Mowers. There is no Double standard as you put in your argument , its called respect for a long serving employee.

As a Manager in business there is an old saying which applies in everyday life , praise in public and criticize in private.

Kasper made him dress and just sit there for an entire game, it was Bush leagueand a freaking joke.

Just imagine if you went to work and your manager said to you that he would like you to spend the day at your particular station sitting in a chair(in front of your co-workers) and doing nothing else but contemplating what you could do better the next day at work.

Its about respect !

Really you see no problem with this?
