BUTCH IS BACK!!!

Recommended Posts

Apparently Pierre-Marc Bouchard is coming back on Wednesday against the Yotes.

Any bets on how long before his next concussion? Hopefully a good long while, if ever. We need another person out there who can do something with the puck other than turn it over right in front of our net.

Sweet. Bet it's been real tough on him. Someone wrap some bubble wrap around that helmut. A healthy PMB would be a real assest.

Meh I'm not very pleased about him coming back. He had some great skill and was a pretty good playmaker before his concussion but he was way too scared of getting hit. The guy is pretty small for a hockey player, tiny in fact. That was his biggest problem though is that he would never go into the corners and dig for the puck. Now that he has had a concussion it is going to be much, much worse.

I hate to say it but most NHL hockey players who come back from a serious concussion are never the same and typically decline in points every season.

Oh well, we will see what he can do. I'm guessing he will play about 30-40 games this season with about 15 points.

I'll be at this one tonight. Looking forward to seeing him on the ice again. Butch is definitely not a scrapper in the corners like Bruno or Clutterbuck. I think he does well with open ice passes and setting up in the offensive zone. He's a smart player with a good stick and hopefully he'll contribute.
