Just to weigh in on the AK or Bourque conversation, I'm throwing my hat in for Bourque.
We've had AK for long enough to know he's not going to change and hell continue to be the inigma he's always been.
I wont judge Bourque by his performance last year based on the fact he got traded at a time when the team had effectively given up and there was really nothing to play for. Before I sart asking for a trade I'll wait until Christmas at the very least before I start to bash him. With a new year, new coach, a system, better knowledge of his team and something to work towards I can see him having a great year on Plex left side with Gio on th right. If it doesn't work and he plays like the player he was last year, I'd be the first to run him out of time bit lets give the guy a chance first.
Biggest difference between him and AK, is that Bourque IS a Canadien and AK is not.
