Bourque plays on the PP (sometime) and PK, that's why he gets more ice-time than AK. I don't think Bourque has been that good lately compared to AK.
When/if Bourque-Gomez-AK develops a good chemistry, their ice-time will go up at around 17-18min.
At least, AK is not whining and accepts his role. Let's just hope his line will build a good chemistry. Then we can have a decent 2nd offensive line while Plek's line will concentrate on a defensive mission.
