Bourque sucks, and some people here are expecting way too much production at $3.3 million. That's not a big contract at all. However, do we want him on the team until 2016? He'll just be a waste of a roster spot.

Get rid of Bourque and by 2014 the team will have him, Gomez, Gionta, Markov, and Kaberle off the books with Galchenyuk in the NHL and others knocking on the door. You then have the money to make a big run at Malkin
with the new cba, if gomez gets sent to hamilton his 7.3m will count against the cap so this isnt an option anymore
