With Koivu out, I guess we'll see Sundstrom in his place. Maybe Bob is holding Saku off so that he can showcase Sundstrom. Who is this Denis Gauthier anyway?
1. Great point....confidence is definately very important to have in order to succeed at the nhl level, and right now Bouillon probably has more confidence than Hainsey against a great team in Ottawa...like you said it would be wise for his confidence as he could get easily rattled
2. Another interesting point you make here....I doubt that Gainey would sit Koivu out if he was 100% to go, despite wanting to showcase Sundstrom...they are probably just playing it safe with Koivu since some more days of rest can only help in him making a healthy return
