BOS puts Chris Bourque on waivers. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) March 7, 2013 A.B. After playing 18 games for the Boston Bruins and logging a substantial amount of time on the power play, Chris Bourque has tallied just 4 points (3 assists, 1 goal). Today, as Bob McKenzie from TSN is reporting, the Bruins have seen enough. And while Bourque will take a roster spot for the Bruins’ AHL team, the Providence Bruins, if unclaimed – it seems more likely that some NHL team will take a chance on the talented forward. Bourque, who led the AHL last year with 93 points, of which 27 were goals, should get another shot on an NHL roster. His performance in 2013 has been poor but his potential is great. Any teams not projected to make the playoffs might have more patience for what looks to be a longer learning curve than the Bruins anticipated with Bourque. After all, let’s remember, he has greatness in his DNA.

  • Bourque has heart and speed, others may have size but not enough speed, so in the end there will not be any great improvement in production but what the bruins need to be looking at are ways to get Raasks reaction times down a bit so he can make some of those saves. Great goalies, like quarterbacks have that 2/10 of a second earlier reaction time to complete a pass or move over to stop a goal. Anticipation and reaction time is what sets the great from the good. And this year we have the good. Those 1 goal losses are what I am talking about.
