I wouldn't worry, they'll switch again (and again) before the year is over.

Edit: In Bourque's defense, his flu/illness may have affected his performance in those last few games, so we'll see if he can keep it up when he's healthy again.
If Bourque produces at a 50 point pace(currently 28/48 or 48/82 games)...25-30 points this year...Cammalleri would need to be at 1 PPGM or more(45-50 points) to match his value as Bourque has been solid defensively and brings size and skill to the Plekanec line. Plus, that's without mentionning his 45% lower cap hit at the other assets(Holland and 2nd rounder) we got in the deal.
