Bourbeau and Hennigar - Teammates?

Hey, it could happen. Of course, you'd have to be living under a rock not to be aware that $quirrel megastar Rob Hennigar signed a two-year deal with the New York Islanders. And former Tommie Jean Bourbeau signed on with the Isles' Central Hockey League affiliate Odessa Jackalopes. Now, optimistic $quirrel fans may envision "Henny" playing setup man to captain Bill Guerin, but he's likely headed to Bridgeport (by the way, what is a "Sound Tiger"?). Now, the latest news has "Bourbs" headed to the Isles' AHL preseason camp. Odessa head coach Paul Gillis calls Jean "A ‘heart-and-soul’ type of guy who finishes checks, kills penalties, and does all the dirty work in order to be successful on the ice.". While it would be a remarkable feat for Bourbeau to make the two-league jump from the CHL to the AHL, congratulations to Jean. It's nice to see all his hard work paying off.
