The Bruins said “it’s not you it’s… ok it’s you” to Tomas Kaberle. Kabs signed with the Carolina Hurriances for way too much money (3-year, $12.75 million). That’s a lot of money for a guy who did diddly in the playoffs. Imagine if he was productive?
As thanks the Hurriances sent the Bruins Joe Corvo for a fourth rounder.
Numbers for last year aren’t bad but if anyone’s got a shot at being the Bruins unicorn it’s the green Steve Kampfer. Should be interesting to see how he does in Boston.
Chiarelli: “I’ve been nibbling at this opportunity for a bit to acquire Joe.”
Pretty sure he also said that about Kaberle.
Wonder what number Corvo will wear since #7 and #77 are both retired. We’ll go with #13.
All in all this is another safe personnel move by Chiarelli. We didn’t expect huge changes and so far there’s been none.
The big question that now lingers — who’s tattoos are better? Corvo or Ference 3:16?
Props to @bruinshockeynow for mentioning Corvo’s tattoos
