Hey its my pleasure. With the lockout still going on I'll probably take more games to get my hockey fix.

Bourque isn't the quick little waterbug that I was hoping he would be. He is a lot faster than your bottom line AHL competition but there isn't enough hustle in his game to see that on a shift by shift basis.

He ends up as being unnoticeable for the most part, and while that may be a compliment for a defensive defensemen, its a slight against Bourque. He's got the tools to be an energy player, but lacks the energy.

Thomas on the other hand, hustles, fights through checks, and brings more hunger to the game than Bourque.
