The same Bourque who was put in an messed up situation on a circus team with a messed up staff and frustrated players and indeed played poorly, just like everyone else outside the first line? And after half a season and many years left on his contract, you'll demote him to the minors? Did the Métis sleep with your sister?
Everyone knows Gomez and Gionta came as a tandem...so it seems unlikely that as long as Gionta is here, Gomez will be moved. I am not a Gomez fan, I think it was classless on his part to take Saku's number at first chance. I'd take Saku and Teemu any day over Gomez-Gionta, but the Habs front office has a love affair with Americans right now, hence my comment (the métis slept with my grandfather for the record Gomez has succeeded in a Habs uniform, it was just so long ago that few remember. Every game I watched last year, Bourque looked terrible, out of sync, like he was drunk on skates (subjective). He definitely lacks defensive acumen, so where does he fit? There is chemistry with a lot of the other players on the team (Desharnais-Pacioretty, Gomez-Gionta, Eller-Moen), Bouque has to find a way to complement some of these players, if he can not, the boo birds will run him out of town before management does. I hope, as I said before, he succeeds.
