Maybe but I'd avoid Bourque altogether. He's extremely limited at 30, coming off a down year with four more years to go on his contract, and trading for him means three teams in two seasons which has its own set of issues. I have more faith in Murray bouncing back in a third pairing role than Bourque returning to the 27 goal, 50 point form he saw in Calgary.

Bourque's value is in his goal scoring. He doesn't do much else and at 30, he's not going to get any better overall. If they acquired him for a mid-round pick then maybe you can take the chance but I wouldn't trade a roster player for him...well, except for Handzus.
