Hey Rocky.....Oops, wrong Bourque

Being "the son of NHL legendary Ray Bourque" doesn't automatically qualify him as a hockey player. Obviously he did not inherit any of his father's genes. He's 27 and just doesn't have it. He'll do well to consider a career change and move on with his life.

A bit cruel. He's a tad small for the big club. Plays hard but he belongs in the AHL.

So .... help me out here. I'm confused. You're saying ... what? That the Bruins put Chris Bourque on waivers because he's such a great player? Brilliant analysis!

BTW, when the Bruins come close to winning as many Stanley Cups as my Wings, come back and I'll listen to your expert opinion about hockey. But, since that's not about to happen any time soon .... I shouldn't hear from you again in my lifetime. Go away!

It is what it is.

It will be great to see the Bruins smoke your precious Wings 6 times next year. Be careful what you wish for when complaining about Conference alignment....

I'm not complaining. I'm looking forward to it. What kills me is that the Bruins win one lousy Cup in over 40 years and their arrogant fans are acting like they're a dynasty or something! Win 4 or 5 in a decade, then we'll talk.
