Bon Voyage Byron Bitz!
Bye Bye Bitzy!
Best wishes to Derek Morris too, who never really won me over, but it's hard to blame him for that. The team isn't winning, he's making 3.3 million dollars, so, you know, that kind of seems like the math. We're sorry it didn't work out, and also a little bummed we couldn't get Wojtek Wolski.
But damn- losing Bitzy?
We loved Bitz on the Bruins from the day he arrived, and loved saying "BITZY!"and "Bitz!" every time he made a strong play along the wall. He earned his spot, played tough hockey, fought Donald Brashear, had his cup of coffee on the top line, and will now and forever be one of those Bruins that moved on, and we can't help but wish the best for. Guys like Hal Gill, Glen Metropolit, Bill Guerin, Dave Andrechuck, Andrew Raycroft, Brad Boyes, and hell- even Bruce Shoebottom. It's a long list, and Bitzy's definitely on it.
I mean, I get it, changes need to be made, but still.
I liked that guy.
OK- Once more, with feeling:
Good luck buddy, and until this Dennis Seidenberg character wins me over, in honor of you Bitzy, we will be referring to him here as (Sigh)denberg.
You will be missed.
