Bruins re-signed the brass-balled Mark Recchi. Surely, Cload wanted him back on the team to show the players what dedication is – we all know the story of Recchi getting his blood switched out, Keith Richards-style, before one of the games vs. Carolina a few months ago. I used to hate Recchi due to his presence on the good Penguins teams of the early 90’s that beat the B’s, and for his presence on the Habs teams of the late 90’s, and it took me awhile to warm to the concept…but as usual, winning changes everything.
Final note. Komisarek is a good player. If there was anyone on the Habs that is worthy of wearing the spoked-B, it’s Komisarek. If you thought he was the biggest chump on the Habs last year, recall that he often had to stick up for his wimpass team, and he was usually the only one. He was probably more upset that he had the Kostitsyns on his team than for anything else.
