Thank You, Nathan Horton

First Ference leaves, now Horty is gone too.

Such an important player and a great guy; it's sad to see him go

Happy trails and thanks for everything!

He was great to watch. I was so worried about him leaving after this postseason but honestly, I don't think I could take another season of me bashing my head against the wall for him.

I think it is for the best. I hope he has some success wherever he may go. Realistically I think Montreal is the best place for him to end up though and that would make me

Hope he follows the money to a crap team and is back wallowing in misery like he was in Florida.

Guy can do what he wants. Doesn't mean you got to be happy for him.

2011 was going to have to end at some point.

Thanks for everything Nate. Best of luck.

I'll be rooting for him wherever else he plays.

Pretty much official.

In spite of his improved play in the playoffs the inconsistent play and injuries are a real concern.

Time to find a new piece...a tougher piece. Clarkson?

I always liked him, but ever since he came back from his concussion he lost his physical play - this is what made him good. Sure, he was great in the playoffs (if you look at his numbers), but he coasted way too much. All the best to him.

He says he loves Boston and wants to stay there, and now THIS?? Damn, just say something like Ference (at the very least). This whole "wanting a New Beginning" thing is kind of an insult. But, whatever.

Wonder why he wants to move on. I thought he wanted to stay. Are they that far apart?

Seriously? Why so bitter?

I hope the best for him. He's done nothing wrong.

do you know why he decided to move on? his agent said he/boston didn't even exchange proposals.

was he unhappy? you guys were so close to the cup - i'm surprised he wouldn't want to come back.

wouldn't be surprised if iginla was back in play. or lecavalier. maybe clarkson or clowe but think they'll get overpaid as secondary offensive guys who are tough.

Who knows?

It's pretty clear that signing Tuukka to a long-term deal is priority #1, and the B's are pretty tight up against the cap. Team/Player might never have been close.

I honestly never got the sense that a "hometown discount" would be in play for 18. Based on his playoff performance (disappearing act against your Hawks not withstanding) he can get paid more elsewhere.

A Bruin fan really should thank him for his playoff efforts, especially game 7 2001 against MTL. But I'll be honest; Ference moving away stings more than this does.

Letting go of Horton and possibly trading Seguin? That's horrible... Im a big fan of PC, but he better not screw this off season up.

Sounds like he wants to be the star like he was in fl. Except post concussion he is closer to Ryder than a star player.

Wow. Surprised. Will his miss PO production, not his in-season unauthorized absences.

Makes it much less likely Seguin goes, imo.

I heard on TSN radio that Bergy's deal may be around 8yr/64m which is a bit more than I expected, though he's worth it. Maybe Bergy and Rask's deals play a role in Nate's decision.

8m a year??!! Bergy is my favorite player in the league, one of my favorites all time, but that's basically Crosby money!

No way that's true. Won't be more than 7.
