- How on earth does Bourque end up on the 1st line (in Looch's absence)?

I look at how cautiously Seguin was used his first year (3rd or 4th line, sheltered minutes, pressbox, etc) and can't really figure out how and why Chris Bourque has literally been given every chance and opportunity to shine.

Just weird (at least to me)...
Well unless they can say to Ray, we gave him every opportunity and he did nothing much with it, so we are sending him back to the AHL

12 games 1 G 2 A 3 Pts -4

They have given him regular minutes. Top line duty. PP time with the 2nd unit.

He's not that good. Their is a reason he hasn't played much in the NHL. Too small.
Gets knocked off the puck a lot. But he's Ray's son.
