Ramsay looks back with without anger



Craig Ramsay said he looks back on his time with the Lightning as a "great'' time. Ramsay is an assistant with the Bruins after being fired last summer after six seasons with the Lightning in which his stick-first defensive philosophy became the subject of a good-bad debate.

"I loved it in Tampa,'' Ramsay said. "It was a wonderful opportunity to go down there and a great group of players to work with. It was fun.I loved my time there and really enjoyed meeting and working with all those people.''

Ramsay has the same duties with the Bruins as he did with the Lightning, mainly working with the defense. He said the dynamic is different working with two other assistants. With the Lightning it was just he and coach John Tortorella. He bemoaned the Boston traffic and said he has played golf just once since he has been here.

"As tough as it is to leave, you look back and the places I've been, I've met so many good people, and now I have a chance to do it again,'' Ramsay said. "It's going to be a good opportunity for me.''
