Remember, too, that Bourque didn't win the Cup that season, he re-signed with Colorado and won in 2001. The Flyers supposedly offered, in at least one variation, Mark Eaton/Andy Delmore (a choice), Sandy McCarthy and a high pick. Sinden made what he thought was the best trade for Boston, and what Bourque wanted wasn't topping his list.
I dont think Sinden had any intention of trading him to a East contender unless they fleeced someone. Of course Bourque ended up going to Colorado for Brian Rolston who had a couple of good years in Boston and spare parts/garbage
