They could bring up Mitchell and Newbury, as well.

Really doesn't matter as long as its a couple of guys who can fill the tole of physical, grinding, defensive forward and play the PK on a regular basis as well.

I selfishly would like Bourque up here because I love the kid, he reminds me of Callahan. He's a leader by example. He never quits.
Hagelin yes.

Bourque, well who knows. Everyone thought Callahan was just a 3/4th line grinder who plays with more heart then anyone, he went to the AHL for a full season and now look how he turned out. Do we really want to rush Bourque or wouldnt it make sense to let him develop in the minors for a year or two? Sure there is still a high chance he will still only be a 4th liner in the NHL, but there is no need to rush that.
