I've never met Chirs Bourque. Hopefully he blossoms into a fine player. I still find it odd that Claude is going so far out of his way to try and have him become a success. But I by no means have anything out against Bourque or any of our players past or present so I truly do not understand the accusation and found it to be odd to suggest it?
Savard is done. Period.

Julien is not going "so far out of his way." Bourque is playing on the third line with two longtime veterans. In two games he's averaging 10:29 ES TOI, ninth out of the forwards, just where a third-liner should be. He's on the second PP unit because he has extensive AHL experience in quarterbacking a PP, he was good at it, and the Bruins needed to shake up their special teams. None of this shows favoritism or special treatment.
