Bouwmeester looked like a lost man under Sutter, hopefully he regains his old form under Hartley.
The last word in your paragraph is the difference. Hartley is going to go with the known quantities. Brodie is going to have earn his time and that is going to be tough in a shortened season. I'd love to see him step up and make Bouwmeester expendable (a trade chit with some good value) but this season is a sprint and coaches tend to go with the guys they know and can trust. Brodie will be an unknown quantity to Hartley.
