Not sure how it's even in the same conversation as Gomez at 7.35 mil cap hit and 9-40-49 over the last 2 years combined.

I'd like to know where you find guys not on ELC's making a lot less than 3.3 mil and scoring 20 yaer in and year out?
And Gomez was a 60 point center before he came to Montreal, he was a true number 1 center. However, smart hockey minds saw the writing on the wall.

Bourque had 5 goals and 3 assists in 38 games for us this year. He's not the Bourque of old. He's on the wrong side of 30... and again, all I saw of him this year was him failing to finish Eller's beautiful plays. I expect him to keep regressing as Gomez has.
