You could've went on the Flames boards and found that out FFS. But anyone who saw a bunch of Flames games could've told you what Bourque was all about.

It's mind-boggling how we can end up with a player like that. Nix the deal and pick some futures up at the deadline. If we wanted to save the season, why would you pick up a lesser player? The supposed 'cancer'? Enough with the BS.

It was a decent move if you wanted to get rid of Cammalleri. But it just wasn't good enough.
How is Bourque "terrible"?

He is having a bad year and still on pace for 20+ goals after seasons of 27, 27 and 21(in 58 games).

At 3.3 mil/year he is a bargain.

I think if you find a skilled winger for him and Plekanec or Eller he should bounce back to 25+.
