He has more cap hit left on his contract as Cammy does. Bourque is a terrible acquisition IMO. Love to be proved wrong down the road but based on the arc of his career, we turned 2 more years of first line fail into 4 years of 2nd line fail. The pick is nice and Holland's an outstanding junior-level player, who knows if he'll be more than that, but Bourque himself is a major headache PG added to the team just when he's supposed to be clearing them out. Kaberle redux. That part of the trade is Niniimaa-quality awful. Nobody knows what Cammy's value might have been, but I know I don't want Bourque anywhere near my team.
