Secondly Cammy has a limited no trade clause which allows him to pick 7 teams he can be traded to so in saying that Gauthier doesnt get much of an option to put out the word and get a King's ransom. Think about it you are trying to find a buyer who will take on Cammy 6 million dollar cap hit without having to take back the same amount of money back with only 7 teams to work with, I think he did a good job and got what everyone has been complaining about, Size!
PS Production is the same from both players, with Bourque actually doing a bit better.
Bourque is playing better, and brings more to the table if and when he is not scoring...oh, and he is a lot bigger than one of the smurfs...remember guys, we are looking for size up front...Cole didn't work out too badly.
