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).
Or possibly a smaller body. A healthy Spooner is tearing up the AHL right now - a goal and two assists tonight. He keeps it up and he might get a shot.
