unlike Gomez, who is overplayed to the point that it actually has a serious effect on the cap and that when he's playing, he's not good enough for a top 6 role and more or less a nuisance playing in the bottom 6.

IMO Players like Bourque and Kabs are 'buy-out potential' if there are better players for those positions. Which might be the case.
Oh, if he does what he's supposed to, meaning bringing energy, physicality and fisticuffs, he could be worth every penny to this team. If he does it, it brings us something that we've been missing for a long, long time.

If he doesn't for whatever reason, he's not worth the pay for his hockey skills alone. Bob Probert he ain't. He's an alpha male enforcer on the bottom 6 or he's nothing.
