Speculation? It's NEVER been more clear. The guy wants Phaneuf money, he's close to getting it here..And yet..he doesn't want it FROM here. What does that tell you?<quoted text>
I don't think Bouwmeester has been a baby. He doesn't really say much one way or the other so I think that's a little off base on your part. Him wanting to leave is just speculation at this point. If he does want to leave and plays hard his final contract year here I can't see why anyone would have hard feelings toward him especially if the team miss the playoffs again. So far Bouw has played every game 4/5 years here and has been the team's best defenseman for most of that period. Hard to fault a guy for wanting to move on from this team especially when they took him to arbitration a couple years ago when he was looking to stay long term.
I agree with you on Horton. it's time for him to become a 40 goal scorer and for a lot of other guys to score at least somewhere around 20 this year if true improvemnt is going to be made.
Damn! Get a friggin' clue!
