Bourque was okay. If there's one thing he's good at, it's carrying the puck through the neutral zone. I'd go as far as saying he's one of the better forwards on the team able to do that. He's ineffective in the offensive zone because he gets pushed off the puck a little too easily but we're also only 2 games into the season. I'd give it at least 5 more before I start begging for Lane MacDermid, Sauve or Spooner.
I think i would be toned down if he wasn't on the struggling pp
