I think Bourque is a third liner/soft minutes player so we'll need an ES second line caliber player.

People will hate this but I'd try to buy low on Dustin Penner.
On ice teamshooting at 5.39% at 5on5 wich basically means the opposing goalie saves 94.6% of the shots the Kings take while he is on the ice. His personnal shooting% is 6.2 for a guy that is usually a 12%+ shooter, he plays pretty tough minutes and does pretty good in them. And as a bonus he'll be cheap due to his NHL.com numbers not looking good (his underlying numbers look just fine). He's due for some regression next year.

i agree
id like a Bourque - Eller - Leblanc 3rd line next year
