Lewis had his Mowers. Does Claude have his Bourque?

In all seriousness though, I really don't have an opinion yet - two games in, and two wins at that.
But there are all types of "specialists" in the game, PP, PK, Shootouts, fights, etc. It's the one thing they do good in the game and the reason they are still in the game. So unless they get the opportunity to show they can do it at the NHL level when they have done it at other levels, how else are they suppose to show it?
Yesterday, some people (and I don't mean fans) were asked how much time do you give a player to showcase himself this year after the lockout? The general consensus was 20 games, with a full schedule, but this year 10-12.
Just too early to form a basis here yet. Heck, he's playing with players he's never played with before. There's no chemistry there...yet. I just think it needs more than 2 games before we write him off.
Reality is that if you want to make it in the NHL you need to do something. Nothing special about Bourque. He is not the answer to the PP and he better do something on that line or he will lose his opportunity. Caron is at least a big body. I think the Bruins need to find something better if they want to make a run for the Cup.
