Felix Potvin has signed in Boston, for a one year deal.

Are they any further ahead?? Is this better then Hackett???

If he's healthy, he will be a step up from the Hackster. And if he has a very good year it will guarantee that he will not be back, because the B's don't like to pay players. If the Bruins could get black market monkeys for cheap and teach them to play, I'm sure they would then trade their players for money. They probably thought of this idea already, and if it would make the Fleet Center sellout every game regardless of wins they would do it, until the monkeys get agents. "Today the Blue Jackets signed Bubbles the chimp away from Boston, The Bruins could not offer him the amount of bananas he was requesting". I do like Felix "the Cat", I will enjoy a real goaltender for a change, now for a real owner! If Potvin "is" past his prime, he is still fun to watch.

I used to think Potvin was really good, until the Leafs got Curtis Joseph. Now THAT's a star netminder. Potvin is a very solid, 2nd-3rd round playoff goalie, but you won't win a Cup with him.

Then again, Boston never seems to want to win the Cup anyway, so it's a perfect fit.

I used to think Joseph was a good goalie, until the Leafs got Belfour and the Wings got Hasek back....

Joseph is never going to win a cup either...

Potvin had more of an emotional feeling when playing in Toronto, as opposed to all the other places he's played at. I'm sure Beantown will be no different.

Joseph, IMHO, is pretty much done.
