And for those bringing up AK. There's a reason he's not in the NHL anymore. Sure he probably has more talent than Bourque, and he showed brief flashes of brilliance, but he was never really able to bring it on a regular basis. Why that is, who knows.
I think a big reason is that he never really played with a top flight center. If we had a superstar center for him to play with his game probably would've come along. Look at what happened with Leclair once he suited up with Lindros. The very day we deal him he turns into a superstar. Not having top flight talent to play along with the AKs and Higgins and Savages that we've had over the years has really hurt us.
