But they are the guys that got him, right. They could have gotten Beauchemin.

Weren't they worried about his knee?

Well Jacques just made a mea culpa, he said that they didn't get the player they wanted out of Spacek. I can't believe people still defend him to this day, he clearly wasn't fitting in with the team or bothered at all with his fitness.

You don't remember his two first years with us then, he was a rock defensively and he was the second most physical of our regulars defensemans, behind Komisarek. Always been a good shot-blocker.

The the last two years, age and way too much ice time changed his game to be more careful and less physical to minimize errors and still be a reliable guy defensively.

He always has been good to move the puck out of the zone and make good passes.

Anyway congrats to Spacek, he was a good guy, he had a pretty impressive career and I always protected him, because he was doing a good job defensively and not enough people were recognizing that, but he still was kind of a deception and I didn't liked when he thrash talked the organization.

I heard that peoples in Anaheim gave false information about the state of Beauchemin's knees to Gauthier since they still held a grudge against the guy.

Regardless he was in Montreal doing tests with the Habs and they actively passed on him for some reason. I wish he got him over Spatcho for sure but it's in the past, oh well.
