We have Prust, Moen, White, and Armstrong as our bottom six wingers, we are fine there. Our problem is that whether or not Bourque can round out our top 6 wingers (along with Patches, Cole, and Gionta).

I don't think I would do the OP because Okposo isn't really an upgrade over Bourque (don't care if I get flamed for that, its true), so why would we trade for someone to make a logjam in our middle 6 wingers? It also eliminates the chance of Gally playing his way on to the team.
