The playoff record probably talks alot more to the buyers than his stats in the regular season here. There's also this perception we're an easy team to play against, no elite talent up front and whatnot, so a GM who thinks he's got that 08-09 season in him would probably think in a better shaped team he'd milk out a lot more production.

Bourque is the centerpiece. That second and Holland is decent value, but the rest is pretty much a sideways move with the potential to go south on us. Right now people are gloating and happy to see Cammy not do well, but he's playing with guys like Blair Jones and Krys Kolanos.

Bourque's playing 18+ minutes and has shown very little reason to keep him in a top 6 role. The 3M$ in cap space is actually not true, since we got 2 more years of the 3M$. I'd rather bite the 6M$ bullet than having 2 more years of Bourque.

Like I said, Bourque just isn't a very good player if we're looking for offense or grit.
