In Response to Re: Remember when the Bruins acquired Horton?
[QUOTE]Horton must have an extra big smile on his face this morning and thanking his lucky stars he's with the Bruins and heading to the playoffs. Today, the Panthers fired yet another head coach - this kind of instability is one of the reasons Horton asked to be traded. Horton and Campbell should take advantage of this opportunity and make it count.

Miami Herald: `I'm not saying anything bad about the organization, but there have been five coaches in the time I've been there,'' Horton said. ``Now, I'm going to a stable, historic organization. I'm going to give it all I've got. I think it'll be good. . . . As a player, the best part of hockey is the playoffs. When you don't make them for seven years or whatever, that's too long. It can't happen. [In Boston], that doesn't happen. It's exciting for me to come and be a part of it.''
Also from the same article
Campbell is a restricted free agent.
`There's always mixed feelings in a trade, and I had a great time in Florida, made some great friends,'' Campbell said. ``But I'm excited to be part of the Boston organization. I haven't played in the NHL playoffs yet, so I'm excited to get that chance in Boston. I watched the playoffs pretty closely.
Welcome to Boston Bruins hockey in the playoffs, fellas. I hope you're ready, because we sure are!
