FURTHERMORE...the Bourque for small money signing is excellent because he bridges 2 seasons where there was a lot of uncertainty the second of which the cap will go down and his cap hit is extremely low. So in terms of roster management PC was smart to have him instead of another body who won't play in the top 6 pulling in 2 mil or so. Thats what a 3rd liner who can play some PP costs.

We know what Caron is, Spooner needs time, Knight needs more time, and we can still make a trade.

Bourque is a good move.
