I'm guilty of bashing Bourque a bit for last season's performance but was also hoping he could pick up his game for our Habs. Pleks is good for any player...and maybe DD can be good as well for Bourque or vice versa.
A lot of people with French names from the prairies are Metis, they were originally the Voyageurs who came out with the fur trade and if they wanted to settle down with a wife, native women were more or less their only choice.
