Pro: He's played in 38 NHL games over two season so far and with the shortened season he could split those fewer games evenly with Garon (25:25 maybe) reducing his workload and responsibility in his first year.

Con: There's not much time for him to adjust and find his groove. If Garon is hot Boucher is probably gonna play him for as long as possible (and vice versa of course).
I'd say its a good thing as he has never shouldered the number 1 workload before.

Should he play well he will see what 35 games tops? That should be enough to ease him in to next season carrying the load over a longer season.
