Truly embarassed to be a Bruins fan on HF over the past 12 hours. So much kneejerk, ******** "we lost the trade" BS. I can't recall these same folks being so impatient when their guy was invisible for weeks at a time.. interesting.
There's always been a lot of reactionary crap on this site. It comes with the territory. Filtering out that noise for the decent discussion is the key.
That being said though, I wasn't a fan of this trade from the start, and I still think they got too little back for Seguin. I wasn't against trading him either, just expected more than Eriksson and some AHL fodder for the guy. At the end of the day, Loui is good but not enough. His skill set is something the team already had in spades, so adding him to the roster doesn't improve the team at all. He's basically a slightly more skilled Rich Peverley. That may hurt some fanboys of Loui's to hear, but it's accurate, IMO. I wasn't impressed with his game when he was with Dallas, and I'm even less impressed after seeing him here. Good not great, but solid defensively, and marginal offensively.
Reality can be a cold slap in the face at times. It sucks, but they didn't get enough for their biggest asset.
