Am I reading it clearly or am I dreaming ? Don't you think Therrien would want to find Bourque some chemistry, for, at least, half a season before throwing the towel on Bourque ? Do you really think one of our rookies will develop in a 25+ NHL goal scorer THIS SUMMER ?

That's so laughable it isn't funny. Bourque was grossly misused. He's an offensive depth winger and was used in a shutdown role. RC was a terribad coach.
I think Bourque is only third line quality of a player these days. But people really don't get the vast gulf there is between NHL third liners and AHL level players.
