While he's slowed down recently, the stats don't tell the whole story, he's been quite good especially when paired with the Plekanec line, who also don't have as many points as they should because Bourque can't finish and Gionta is a black hole.
Why do you say Bourque can't finish when he's had 30-goal seasons and you've seen with your own eyes that he can score? And haven't you read the many posters who've changed their minds about him and now agree that the trade actually benefited the Habs? I agree that Gionta has not been particularly effective but Cole has been a greater disappointment so far this season.
