Except, DD has no market value while Bourque ... may still have some. What doesn't make sense is moving Bourque if we're not adding somehow.
I know DD has no market value...but I don't think Erat has much more. I agree if were not going to add size/physicality why trade Bourque...
Bourque will soon start scoring because he always was a streak scorer.
We need to add players like Prusty 8 suggested.. Troy Brouwer, Jason Chimera, Steve Downie, Marcus Foligno, Nck Foligno, Andrew Shaw
I'm not as down on Bourque as some are, but I'd do this trade. I think that Chimera would be a good fit on our team, and would ensure our Top 9 isn't way too small. Erat might bounce back playing with fellow Czech Pleks.
Patches - Eller - Briere
Erat - Pleks - Gionta
Chimera - Chucky - Gally
Prust - White - Bournival
cus shore has the potential to be a good bottom 6 center, glennie is a 1 dimensional player so he either has to be a top 6'er(which is very unlikely) or he'll just be a lifetime ahl'er
players like shore/leblanc etc. hold much more value than players like glennie
