Bourque has the longer term deal and is essentially a junk player who's been declining for a while. He's also got a partial no-trade clause in his deal that could complicate moving him (Kaberle doesn't). Sure he shows flashes of potential now & then .. reminds me of Chad Kilger that way. Shoulda coulda woulda .. didn't.
Gomez & Bourque are the no-brainer buyouts.
"a junk player who's been declining for a while" ?
He had 18 goals last yaer in a crap year and 27 the year before. What are you expecting for 3.3 mil/year, not exactly superstar money. Did I miss something or does Pittsburgh have Crosby and Malkin signed for 3.5 mil/year?
