Boulerice back in the AHL, where he belongs.

“Boulerice back in the AHL, where he belongs.

I take it you’re saying this because of his earned reputation for things like this.

If that’s true, I ask why should the AHL be where he belongs? So he can maim players that don’t make $500 000 plus? Or did you just say that because you don’t want him in the NHL, and that’s the end of your point?

I’d love to hear from you if it’s because of my second sentence in the second paragraph. That’d be super-interesting.
