Also the team could become very small overnight if you replace him with a smaller player and have Bourque in the top 9.

He is so inconsistent than I don't know about giving him a raise.
Sort of reminds me of the debate we had about Ryder. I (and Bruwinz37 IIRC) were strong advocates of acquiring him. I, at least, was also ok about letting him walk; a decision I came to regret. Could NH be the same case? Could be. I'd say any raise would be highly dependent on another money playoff performance--as he has shown he can deliver.

If he slouches through this season and playoffs, I'd probably be ok with letting him walk if he doesn't take a discount. After all, he is big, but he plays small or nonexistent, so I don't see a huge impact in missing his size.
