Looking at Bourque's size and speed you would automatically assume he has a spot on this team but he has not shown IMO that he meshes with anyone. He has not been an added value to any line. I think it has to do with his limited hockey sense. His intensity can be frustrating. While I am a total amateur I can't see MB not trying to move him.
He has no room on the 4th line and I don't want Bournival sitting so he can get back in the line up.
