Agree with the assessment of Fitzy, the guy gives me fits sometimes, but he's playing WAY too much with Willie being out.
Bourdon...send him down, I don't think he's ready. We send him down, save 400 K in salary on some Moose call up, gain another year before hes FA eligible and give him time to develop into more of an impact player.
If we keep him, we're banking that he learns more from being in the room and practicing with these guys rather than playing 30 mins/night and leading a junior team. If he was making an impact, playing solid minutes and showing he could be a 4/5 guy this year then he should stay. Right now, if it's really a wash between him and Fitzpatrick over who sits in the press box, I don't see the point in keeping him.
