Marc Savard getting traded in 2015 is ridiculous

Funny … After I went on about how the Boston Bruins were driving their fans insane, they actually had a pretty good week. They traded Martin Jones, who they got in the Milan Lucic deal, for a 2016 first round pick and a prospect. And on Wednesday, they made a seemingly innocuous trade when then sent Reilly Smith to Florida in exchange for Jimmy Hayes. It’s a fairly even trade...

Boucher: 2015 NHL Draft Road Trip

When it was announced that the 2015 NHL Draft was going to be held at the BB&T Center, I knew I wanted to be there.
