Yeah.
I remember about a year ago reading a thread on the trade board about the value of Bourque to Montreal.

It was a consensus by the Flames fans that this was simply impossible, and that Rene was essentially untouchable; for the reasons that his contract was great, he put up consistent numbers, and was a vital part of the forward core.

Go figure.
