Plus, that's without mentionning his 45% lower cap hit at the other assets(Holland and 2nd rounder) we got in the deal.
When all of the above can play like he has in the playoffs then I'll believe it was a good trade. Some people dislike Cam for whatever reason and I don't care...Habs fans are the most fickle fanbase in sports. Bourque was hated, now he's a superstar. Cam was a king, then turned into a bum a year later. Same thing is happening with Cole. People will sour on Bourque again...and question the "pieces" we got in the deal.

Happy that Cam is playing some good hockey.
