Bouillion is more aggressive, but, coupled with a lack of size, that just means he'll have to go overboard to take guys down, and it'll cost us a penalty. With our penalty killing sucking these days, and with Gonchar on the point, that's the kiss of death!
They both have no playoff experience, so that's equal. Bouillion makes just as many, if not more mistakes than Komi, so that's equal. And Bouillion doesn't contribute offensively, neither does Komi. So why not play the MUCH bigger man? I'll bet if Montreal goes down a couple games, you'll see Komi or Dykhuis in there and Bouillion out. (hope it doesn't happen that way though)
The question is not to play Bouillon over Komi, but Quintal over Komisarek.......... still, maybe experience is more important.
Bouillon was the only one hitting yesterday..... oh, sçuse me, I forgot that big hit of Rivet on SAMSONOV! common....... there is only Bouillon who plays with hearth. Speaking of heart, it looks to me like Begin is still injuried.......
