Well no, it's a little too late now anyways. But the point was to give the player you just acquired (that's probably pumped up) the best chances to succeed.
If I remember, Bourque was placed with Plekanec and a filler. By then, RC had already converted Plekanec into a checking center.
A mix up with the lines might have helped too. AK was still around too, but limited to the 4th line with Gomez and a filler.
Maybe give Bourque a shot on the PP with DD/Cole or MaxPac to get him going. In any event, try things.
I'm not a fan of Bourque, never been. But I'm not really going to judge him on his performance here. Our team has been horrible under RC.
