Kind of getting sick of Bourque. Never really been a fan, but now he's been caught twice with bad hits.

Shape up Rene!!!!

His head is like his effort on a lot of nights... he'll use it once in a while when he feels like it, otherwise it's off.

Bourque is a gangster (not in a good way)

That was avoidable and a bad play. It looked like he was just aiming for his head. I would be more patient if it was incidental, but that was brutal.

I really wish he would get his **** together.. He was at one point almost taking Iggys spot as my favorite player, now I could care less if he was gone tomorrow.

so...there is a segment of the caps fan base caught up in the dale hunter thing that thought the cheap shot elbow is a sign the caps need that player. so offer up a trade to the caps and watch the caps fans lineup.....backstrom concussion and all.

The worst part is despite his laziness he's still our 2nd best goal scorer and 2nd best PKer. We need his lazy ass in the lineup. You can't be missing 2 of your top 3 LWers, 2 of your top 3 defensemen and still compete when you're a bubble team anyways.

Bourque suspended. Backstrom day-to-day in my pool. Canada loses to Russia.

What a horrible week.

We just keep getting weaker up front. It might be nice to see Nemisz get another shot.

I gotta say our fanbase is one of the most unbiased in the NHL. If Bourque played on the Oilers or say the Nucks, you now 'some' posters would be finding a way to justify what Bourque did and say he didn't deserve to get suspended.

Going by Bourque's comments, hopefully when he comes back he can spin this into a positive and become a much more complete and responsible player.

I'm sorry but I'm going to have to call you out on the part where we lacking a stupid poster or two makes us less biased as a group here. I disagree with that correlation.

At the same time though, absolutely agree hoping that Bourque might use this as a turning point.

I think part of that has to be Bouqrue being the most hated player on the team.

2 hits doesn't make him like Cooke. Next thing you know If Ivanans scores 2 goals you will say he has become Jarome Iginla

You need to get a clue

My concern is that this is just another step in a crappy season for him. Not long ago I thought he would be a great trade-bait if timed correctly. He is so inconsistent he would have to be traded while on a scoring streak so his cap hit seems like a steal to another GM.

Now he's got another notch and a red flag against him.

I disagree that Bourque is a hated player on the team, he's just a frustrating one to watch.
