Also, I'm not just judging his offensive game in Hamilton. His overall game hasn't been very good there (doesn't help that his team is terrible).
Bournival is a very good player. He's one of those you can't use stats to gauge and he isnt the type of player you can use rookie numbers as a gauge. He wants to be better and pushes himself to be. He will adjust to the A and what he needs to do then follow suit when he makes the jump to the NHL. Can not discount how strong he is and how good he could be defensively in the pros.
How many times have we heard the Avs say they didnt really want to move a player? Rather than make the cut and paste quote, they stated how hard it was for them to trade MB. He will be an NHLer unless something serious happens to him.
