As a guy who liked AK, to me Bourque is similar because he's a big guy who can hit hard who has a rocket shot. I tend to like these guys even though they're enigmas as they tend to disapear for stretches. I really like what I've seen from Bourque early in the season and I was really happy to see MT put him out there for the PP in OT yesterday.
He's always had all the tools. Big, decent skater, can shoot... Sure he could put it together. The guy's scored close to 30 on a couple of occassions and has the talent to do it. It's the inconsistency that is bothersome. You never know if he's going to show up and when he doesn't he's completely useless out there.

Like I said, if he starts playing well I hope we sell high.
