I’ve heard guys sound excited to be traded to the Bruins, but new pick-up Boris Valabik might be taking enthusiasm to new heights.
Here’s what Valabik had to say to AJC writer Chris Vivlamore after the Bruins and Atlanta made their 2-for-2 trade today:
“Boston is a dream come true as far as an organization and a style of play. I’m thankful for another chance and I finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. … I was thinking if I get traded, I’ll be the luckiest guy in the world. Now it’s up to me and not anybody else.”
A dream come true? I wonder what he thinks of going to Providence. I wonder if he forgives Zdeno Chara for that beatdown the Bruins captain delivered a couple years ago. I wonder if he knows he’s joining a P-Bruins team that’s headed toward a playoff-less spring.
Anyway, glad to hear he’s excited to join the Bruins organization.
