    Wow. That really deserves its own thread.

    Edit: Both the Boynton column and the Senators thing, actually.

    That's a tough read. Good for him for putting it out there.

    It appears to be the Bruins that he's talking about here:

    Boynton was traded twice in the off-season, once by Boston (to Phoenix) and once by Phoenix (to Florida). As recently as 2015, he was working for the Coyotes, so there would seem to be no bad blood there. The Bruins were also his first NHL team, and the place where he played the most, so his friend's surprise would make sense.

    Even if it is the Bruins, the two events could be unrelated, but that's not a great look.

    Bullshit they’re unrelated. And it’s not even an ok look, though I suspect its a common one. Hopefully his story makes a difference, but, like the NFL, the league and teams are businesses and the ONLY thing that will change this sort of thing is if it affects the bottom line.

    Peter Chiarelli was hired between the time that he told someone with the team about his issues and when he was traded. There’s a chance that Chiarelli just didn’t like him as a player.

    There were quite a bit of changes going on around the same time. O'Connell was fired, an interim GM was named, then Chiarelli was hired. Coach Mike Sullivan was replaced with Dave Lewis.

    Until the last few paragraphs, I felt like I was reading a suicide note.
