I disagree while he doesn't have the hustle and hard work, Bourque is a good positional player in regards to playing in his own end, for that reason he was used on the PK, so I wouldn't play him a liability, or atleast not as bad as some make him seem.

Also Bourque was actually scoring goals until his trade to MTL, while his overall play might have been good, he still scored 13 goals in 38 games with the Flames last year, and was only a -3.
