Who do you think will be our 6th D in the playoffs?

I like what Bouillon has done this season so I think he's definitely earned the right to at least start the play-offs as the 6th man. He throws his weight around well so in that respect his size isn't an issue although he can't contain forwards with size (and we're sure to see some not matter who we play against - Thornton, Sundin, Primeau, among many others). He's proven he's a smart player who keeps things simple and does all the little things well...he's not great, but he's someone you can count on to be reliable.
What would I do? Dress an extra D in all games to be safe....give the bulk of the extra ice time to Bouillon at home when Julien has his choice of line match up, and on the road give the extra ice time to Quintal (experience) or Komisarek (size) - if he finishes the season *strong*.
