Say what you want, you make trades based on player production. You don't look back at 3 years ago and say, OMG how can we trade a 39 goal scorer. You want to look back, look at the production of these 2 players for the past 2 years. Bourque has same goal totals. I was shocked to learn that following trade.
And one thing I am fed up with, GM's saying they didn't know he was available. Its probably because they didn't ask Gauthier for him. They saw he was a having a bad season, saw his cap hit, saw his salary left for next 2 years and didn't bother calling Gauthier. How many teams could have taken on his salary? The Flames were crazy enough to do it. The fact is Cammy has 9 goals this season, he looked like he didn't want to get hurt anymore. Bourque plays with an edge at least and his cap space is very manageable. Yes the term is long but we can use cap space.
