What worries me is that Galchenyuk is not contributing. He had one shot last night.
Chuckie has 36 missed shots in 47 games.
Bourque has 35 missed shots in 26 games.
I would much rather see Chuckie shooting than Bourque. And Prust usually found a way to get the puck to him so he could at least get a shot on net.
So you're mad that Bourque gave that line a goal (Chucky brought the puck to the net) because maybe they could have had more if Prust was feeding Chucky for shots. In that game, Chucky missed at least 3 chances to score. Bourque is, if anything, giving him some space. Not saying Prust doesn't, but Bourque works with them too and Prust is useful on a very good 4th line (remember, our 4th is not scrubs, it has a specific role to play that is important).
Chucky has been producing just fine lately, nobody is dragging him down and I hope he starts to use his other skills to score. Kadri has been using his shot, Chucky hasn't scored once using it (think AK snipe). I have a feeling it's going to happen very soon. Bourque is not the puck hog you think he is and if he scores, I really don't care if it was him, Eller, Chucky or whoever. If those three can generate goals playing together, then I'm all for it!
