Bouillon getting lots of ice time right now does not translate into anything about his long term future with the team over say, Hainsey or Komo. CJ has been very consistent in rewarding players who come to play every night, and the Cube falls within that category. CJ preaches accountability and sticking to the system...with it, you play, without, you sit.

Bouillon plays gritty hockey and brings his game to the rink every game. That is getting him ice time right now, but we cannot extrapolate that to conclude that he would get the long term edge over younger guys like Hainsey and Komo who have much more upside. Let them develop, but at least for now we have a stop gap guy who gives his all for the team. Coaches and fans should collectively like that type of player.
