I don't care if he's 21 and in his second season. He's frail, injury prone and neither big nor strong enough to be more than a role player at the AHL level. That's all well and good and not without a level of value. I just get tired of people including Bourque in the discussion of legitimate prospects (i.e. Thomas, Audy-Marchessault, Hrivik to a degree, etc). He has mush for brains and will be out of the organization in a year or two.
I'd give him a second pro year before throwing him out entirely. He already looks improved this season. Not saying he has any sort of incredible career in his future, but damn, there really is no point in labeling him as anything right now.
