I think what he's saying is that he's not sure yet. If you're making that assumption at this point, then it's likely just the opinion that you had before the season started... now backed up with six games of "stats."
Now, you may be right. Actually, you most likely ARE. I don't see the high potential for Bourque to be a legit contributor to this club on the third line. Didn't like the idea to begin with and he hasn't done anything to change my mind.
But I said I was going to give him a chance. And that's what I'm going to do. Six games isn't enough to define anyone as anything. Bourque while not being great by any means, hasn't been awful either. Sometimes I think people's want to be disappointed can crush the opportunity to be pleasantly surprised.
