I don't think either of those guys are Ouellet's competition. They're meant to play offensive roles. Ouellet is meant to play a defensive role. I bet you anything he'll play with Harrington on a shutdown pair.

The guys he's competing with are Murphy, Dumba, and Reinhart, IMO. Murphy would mean the team has no real shutdown pair, Dumba could possibly fill that role, and it's hard to say with Reinhart because he's never shown up when I've watched him. I think Ouellet is the happy medium amongst all of these guys.

and, no, Benoit Pouliot is way too old for the tourney. He would completely dominate, though.
