This is something that has been discussed on the canucks boards recently, and just trying to gauge what other fans think. Luc Bourdon, 10th overall in 2005, has been playing fantastic in Vancouver in the preseason, had an assist tonight against Calgary, looks like he'll be on the roster for the opener against Pheonix. My question to the rest of HF is if you think, based on his performance, it's a good idea to keep him in the lineup, or to send him back to junior. Obvious pros would be; a better d-man than the competition : Baumer, Butenschon, Doig. Cons would be: Slowing development, possibly rushing him, losing a year of RFA, more expensive. IMHO if Bourdon IS good enough to play top 4 minutes, give it to him. He showed up Phaneuf tonight in the game against Calgary, and has been playing just as well so far, he's tied for 2nd in team scoring @ 4 points, he is hitting, and playing solid defense. One more year of junior might help the kid, but the canucks time is now, and he can help this team. Thoughts?
