At least Bourque is a winger, who is also physically built for the role of gritty winger. Should prove easier to motivate an uninterested/unengaged Bourque than somehow make Gomez good enough to compete in the NHL these days.

I really, really didn't like the Bourque acquisition, but now that he IS here, I'm more inclined to include him in my lineup brainstorms than Gomez.
Even though you agree that Gomez' effort is better than that of Bourque's, you would play Rene over Scott??? That is the wrong message to send to any dressing room.

BTW, if it were my choice, neither would ever wear a Habs jersey again.
