Sorry, Bourque's troubles started well before he got to Montreal. Did you not see Kelly Hrudey's weekly ReneReel lowlight presentations? It made it all the more puzzling why a player, clearly being shopped by his team for over a month, had no takers and why our GM was willing to take that mess on.
His soft play continued in Montreal under "fresh start" conditions making everyone wonder just why this player was taken on as a project.
Looks like the criticism has sunken in, Bourque looks in better condition and better focused to contribute. After having the words buy out swirling and under a no excuses regime it seems Bourque has come to play. Thankfully.
