That being said, if it was even a couple years ago, I'd love to have him on my team.
Don't confuse me with the vI turbo dude. I'm not some blind Bordeleau admirer. So when I say the fact he's been playing ten solid minutes a night, I mean it and I'm not wearing rose colored glasses. He's been one of the very few positives from a laughable Avs season. Dealing with a guy like David Koci
for a couple years I know what a 2 minute a night enforcer is, and I can assure you Bordeleau is not that, no matter where he plays. He's playing regular shifts in the third period, not just because the Avs suck. It just kills me when a guy, especially on hockeyfights, calls a guy like Bordeleau irrelevant, when its just not even close to the truth.
