I think Vancouver was expecting him to retire long before then and it would be off the books

Fair enough

But to my original point Rask's deal is hardly the albatross Luongo's deal has become.

IMO Rask over Seguin is a pretty dumb move that will hurt Boston 3-4 years from now.

I'm not sure why you are looking at this as a direct Rask -vs- Seguin thing from the Bruins pov. Having read Chia and Neely's comments on Seguin, its fairly obvious moving Seguin was about concerns they had about him with his big deal starting next season. Neely said if they couldn't get what they wanted for him they were going to move forward with Seguin on the roster. Then work with him on becoming a better professional among other things. I'm not saying Rask's contract has no impact but its not quite the either/or decision you're making it out to be.


I also don't see how the Bruins are going to regret this move in 3-4 years. The Bruins added the best player in the deal right now (Eriksson) whose game will be a perfect fit in Boston and he's only 27 with 3 years left on his deal. They also added 3 young players/prospects as well. Plus if Seguin puts it together in Dallas as a center and becomes the #1 center he has the potential to be. It still doesn't really matter because he never would get that chance in the next few years in Boston with Begeron/Krecji there. If anything this deal is a win/win for both the franchises involved and key players involved (Seguin/Eriksson).

Nah, just more competition for Buffalo at the top of the draft.

Besides, doesn't this open up the Devils as a destination for Vanek?

How did he cost them a 1st rounder next year?

He certainly put the Devils in a tough spot but I fail to see what's cowardly about this.

They were fined for his original contract that was found to be in violation of the cap circumvention rules.

JFB's post and how he clearly is just all about his money. No dedication to his teammates, his fans, or the league that made him who he is. Disgusting.
