I'm ok with it. Even if Bourque plays in Providence for both years, he will help that team become relevant and competitive again. I think a terrific AHL player could be worth $500K, especially if he takes the team deep into the playoffs.

I like the Paille signing too. Ideally, Caron would be in Providence for one more year.
They would have never traded for him if they didn't feel like there was a good chance he'd sign with them over going to FA.
