The question now is, what kind of guy is Rene Bourque? Is he the kind who can stand the pressure of playing in Montreal, or is he the type who will lose sleep, find himself with an ulcer, and wish he was in Phoenix..
The kind of guy he is will dictate how successful this trade becomes.
We sincerely hope Rene Bourque understands what it means to wear the sweater of the Montreal Canadiens, that he gets it and feels the honour of wearing the CH. This isn’t just another team. It’s so much more.
The pride from fans and players can never die. People must continue to know about Howie Morenz and the Rocket and Jacques Plante and Danny Gallivan and Rene Lecavalier. They should learn about Beliveau and what he meant and did for the organization. They should know about Guy Lafleur. All that good stuff. Read a few Habs books.
Mike Cammalleri said he got it, but we needed more than that. We needed production.
So now we move on. A big trade. A big change in the look of the team.
And changes are good, because when they’re made, we have so much new hope.
