Bourque is certainly getting a fair shot. If he doesn't make it, pops can't say he wasn't given every chance in just about every situation.

I've been more impressed over the last 5 game stretch. He's still wasting scoring chances, and hasn't shown that goal scoring ability - but he hasn't been invisible, chipping in with hustle defensive plays, consistant effort, and isn't affraid to hit even with his small frame. That goes a ways with me.

He's getting chances, he needs to finish...that's his game. Sure, his linemates are in the same boat - but they've earned complete confidence. Bourque needs to get going in terms of production...He has no NHL body of work. He's getting a shot and then some...but that cap $,$$$,$$$ could easily upgrade his spot on this team.

It would be awesome if he could relax and find it. I'd love to use some of that cap money on Ference's spot...Andy can really be out-to-lunch sometimes...Man, our D would be rock...
