In Response to Re: "KESSEL IS ELITE" : u see ur approach is very professional ! this is the way we gain at the very least some hope of having a smart talk. here is what i would like u to understand- first off let me say that when i was 16 or so i too thought that the bruins made all the right decisions and could do no wrong but when u wisen up u see things the way they are. this was never about $ , it was about treatment. Let me elaborate. Kessel was well according to the gossip a non-conformist; thus mgmt did not make him priority . CJ and kessel were not on good terms , pc chose cj over kesse- that's my problem. cj has proven nothing apart from being fired everywhere he was, comes here and he's given all this leverage. Is this what the bruins had become we make gods out of mediocre coaches. Kessel never said he did not wanna play here but when he's hearing that he'e in the middle of trades i.e kaberle tradeand on topm of that theyre signing krejci then how could he react , how would u react? kessel was never priority and should have been. Very simply put many were saying that sturm , ryder would replce him so did the bruins mgmt , i never did , i knew we were in trouble, that the offence would suffer greatly, that we ahd no morea first elite line and knew that no ryder sturm and for goodness sake bitz would replace him. sSomefelt bitz would score 20 u gotta be kidding me! just know that mgmt got away with this one and i would like to kno if pc would do this trade again, if he would gamble as he did. I took stats in university but calculating the stat that we would get a number 2 is harder and many givens would have to be asserted. I can assure u though taht teh chances were quite slim and pc got lucky. as far as as thomas i will answer u straight- NO i do not believe any other team would give him 5 m in fact i am quite confident of it. TT is playing ver well better then i expected jyust hope he brings it in the palyoffs but the fact is if u listened to most hockey people even after his vezina he was ranked about 15 or so best goalie. I truly hope he plays in the palyoffs and wins the big games and ultimately a cup. Rask has many yrs so i would love to see tt do it. i do not have a fortune 500 business but my income is in the top 5% and i have done it completely on my own . I will not get into it but i will tell u that the adversity i faced, safe to say large majority have not. enough with that. If i have a great employee , no i do not get rid of him, i look at him as an aset especially if he is young and has many years to go. I look at my managers to work with him and hopefully mold him to company criteria. Not easy i agree but it does happen but here is where the difference lies.In my business it is easier to find a star then it is in sports team.

I think that you are missing the "big picture", but perhaps that's my fault for not elaborating more, or expanding upon my original analogy. So, let me take it a step further...
Your "employee" doesnt like your "manager", or how that manager conducts business in his department, is grossly unhappy with it, in fact and absolutely refuses to "buy-in" to it. He's a total prima-donna, a maverick, and that's maybe creating some turbulence amongs the other 19 or so other employees in that department. It's becoming disruptive, and hurting productivity and staff morale.
Beyond that, IF you cave in and give the one guy the money he is demanding, doing so will mean that you will likely have to let 2 other highly trained and skilled employee's walk away, as you will simply be unable to pay them what they are worth, or what they can make working for your competitors. Think about that, and what you as a business owner would really, truly do in such a circumstance.
I would question the wisdom of a business owner giving that employee what (s)he wanted, in the above scenario - wouldnt you agree? It doesnt make much sense it's spelled out this way, does it...and at the end of the day, the Boston Bruins are first and foremost a business, make no mistake.
So, it's goodbye phil - it's nothing personal, it's just business. Goodbye, and best of luck with your future endeavors. Don't let the door hit your @.$s on the way out. Buh-Bye, mmmmmkay.
As a quick aside, and just as an FYI for you, Marco, for the record, I do NOT support all the Bruin's front office decisions, but that doesn't mean I stop supporting the team on the ice.
Hey, I didn't like a lot Dubya Bush's decisions, either...but I still support the troops.
In both cases, it IS possible to disagree with the people making the decisions at the same time that you are supporting the men in uniform....
