i don't understand this "fresh air" bs re: Butch's perceived play. That's about as stale as you get when talking about current Wild players...That was everyone's mantra. There were only a few people, Talon, defending Bouchard on the old boards, not the other way around.

As Jarick said, he did change his play with a new coach, new system, and it looked good on him. I think Bouchard plays the way the coach wants him to. Think exactly the opposite of Zidlicky...If Bouchard is playing a certain way, I expect it has a lot to do with what the coach is telling him to do. I too expect Granlund to play like the more aggressive version of Bouchard than anything else, and that's perfectly fine--we absolutely need someone with vision and creativity out there.
