You're grasping at one of the same straws the rest of us are.
Someone in that RW spot needs to be CapitalsCup2010 pointed out....
We need a skilled guy who can carry and protect the puck to establish possession in the offensive zone.
Not Aucoin. He's a setup guy. He's Backstrom light.
Bourque makes sense for a lot of reasons...except the size thing. But if they can't bring anyone in....maybe he does get the shot up there. I think he and Ovie would work very well together actually.
Ovie - Backstrom - Bourque
Flash - Nylander - Semin
Laich - Steckel - Bradley
Giroux - Aucoin/Gordo - Clark/Fehr
Edit: You know...I kinda like that.
