Fit in with his linemates and work hard on his shifts while not hurting our winning chances. So far he has done all of those things.

When we got Paille, Buffalo had sent him up and down multiple times and he was a high draft pick. Buffalo classified him as a bust, yet the B's pick him up, put him in a low pressure line and he now is perfect with Thornton and Soupy. Why can't that happen with Bourque?
Well said.
