Pens have elite players up front, but their defense sucks (yes they have Letang and Orpik but they have no defensive system and Fleury can steal games when he is on but he can't steal them all).

One thing about the Bruins is that they generally don't have the super flashy players, but they do have several good players and reasonably good depth.

I do think the 3rd line left wing spot to date though is a huge, gaping hole that needs to be fixed. Bourque IMO isn't the piece to fill that hole. I don't even think they need to acquire a big name, just somebody with a bigger body with some shooting skills. A Pouliot like player with a better hockey IQ. If Ryder came cheaper I wouldn't mind Ryder back (Ryder mostly bothered me for the salary compared to production-he was way too expensive for what he provided).
