And you especially don't trade him for Dupuis. The guy is, at BEST, a "nice" third line player, assuming he can get back to the level he was 4 years ago and hasn't really been at since.
Bourret might only be a third line player someday, but I don't think you move him for Dupuis, I mean this is a guy who has been clumped into the whole Moore/Hall boat and those guys were not going to fetch a former first round pick who is all of 45 games into his pro career.
If Alex were 23 or 24 I could understand that, but this kid won't even be old enough to drink in the states for another 8 months.
Ok so what you're saying is you think it's a good idea to move a third line player for a guy who might be a third line player someday?
