It's more the 3.3 that bugs me. I think we could have Bournival on that line and not lose much (or anything, or even gain) in production and value, for a lot cheaper than Bourque's salary. MASSIVE assumption that someone would take him, of course. Which likely isn't the case. But if anyone was going to take him, after the playoffs was probably our best shot. Anyway, as someone above mentioned, it bodes well that the pressing matter is the bottom 6.

I hate Datsyuk for being 37 and therefore unlikely to play for another decade.

Bottom 6 Bournival - Eller - Sekac Prust - Maholtra - Weise I know Bourque had an amazing playoffs, but to me that means someone might've actually taken a chance on him and taken him off our hands. I'd take future considerations to dump the salary. Moen as the 13th forward. Bournival has shown he's ready to be in the league in the right role. And he has the legs to be on the third line. Bourque has more natural scoring touch, but I'll take Bournival's game any day over his. MT never listens to me though. Just keeps winning...the bum

Shelve Bourque until the playoffs, put Bournival on the third line (imagine the energy of that line!). Sekac as a potential net presence on the PP? Might be worth a shot. Big and has decent hands.

My guess is Markov is our new captain

Get we need cap space, but we need leadership too. Gorges and Gio were key to that
