Most I'd give up for Bourque is Wolski, Hagelin/Valenteko, and a 2nd. Is it quantity? Hell yes, but Bourque isn't a 1st line winger. I'd rather break the bank and get a legit 30-30 guy.
Rene Bourque is pretty close to being a 30-30 guy and probably would be playing with Richards and Gaborik.

Last year on a terrible Calgary team he scored 27-23 for 50. Last year he scored 27-31 for 58 in 73 games and the year before he scored 21 goals in 58 games.

I mean, no, he's not a proven 30-30 guy, but he fits the mold for that line so well with good size, speed and physicality and he's put up pretty good numbers without a good playmaker. He's the kind of player we could use on that line and could boost his numbers playing with Richards and Gaborik.
