Just a thought, nothing to knock on Bourque but he was coming off a low season so yeah...
Not really. Tallon and Sutter probably knew Bourque was better than he played last season. Good GMs don't trade good 3rd line players for mid round draft picks (Sutter did it once with Chris Clark and I'm sure regrets it). Sutter had to overpay a little to get Tallon to bite.
