Preds fans love affair with guys like Bourque and Beck create unrealistic expectations. Both guys are NOT (yet) first line players on a contending club. Most team's checking lines will render them ineffective more often than not. They need to be second and third line guys and develop over time. Bourque is small but effective, but if he's placed in that position of "first line guy" they're gonna chew him up and spit him out defensively and stifle him offensively... especially because the team doesn't have a number one center...

Yikes... where to begin...

We do know one thing... there are no less than 9 or 10 excellent options for a fourth line
