Bourque is an inconsistent player who disappears, but I'd take him over Gomez easily, especially on that contract. Plus until this team gets another top 6 winger, we really can't afford to dump any player with a goal scoring track record regardless of their "character"

Bourque was annointed with a bad rap before he arrived to replace Cammalleri who did less for 2X the money.Bourque scored huge in Calgary with their awesome offence imagine how much he is going to do with Therrien as the coach.I believe he will be the kind of "glue"player that helps our team togetherness concept.Rene has the toughness to make the game hard for the opposition and it sounds like he will come to camp ready to prove his worth.Athletes need to be given the right direction to show their abilities and Therrien will be happy with Bourque IMHO.
