But the thing is the guy can score, only 1 goal this year, but he is getting chance, and 3.3M on a 64M cap isn't that bad.

Another thing that has helped is Gionta is back, Bourque isn't good enough to be the 2nd best player on a line, last year he played with Plek and another plug on RW, with Gionta on the line, Bourque can be a complimentary guy on the line.
By the same token, having a 6'2" 200+lbs winger opposite Gionta is a nice asset to have.
