Please correct me if I'm wrong, but is Clowe not offensively inert this season (and not like he's an Art Ross contender otherwise)? As much as I get frustrated with Gio, he does play an important role that would only be evidenced by removing him and seeing what happens with a Clowe.

I totally get that Clowe hits and crashes, and I'm fine with acquiring him using picks, but I don't see him making the Ryder-Plek-___ line more effective offensively than Gionta. Remember, Gio is fast and backchecks all the time. It allows Pleks a little more freedom. I don't mind Clowe playing a Prust like role, but we already have Prust and if we are so lucky to get RB back, I'm even more confused about our lineup. I like Prust in the top 9. I guess juggling would have to occur.

Is it certain that Bourque won't return or is it just concussion unpredictable status?
