Sure, I'd love to see him work out because quite frankly, this team

I'm with this. The man is absolutely terrible at Center and still has defensive lapses and you put him on a line with Lats (pretty damn flat footed when it comes to transition) and Marty, who in his own right has lapses. Not to mention, I wouldn't bank on Bouchard playing more than 60 games this season anyways. And having Wellman on the fourth line is going to piss off the Moderator
