Therrien's giving Bouillon Subban's workload in minutes. As soon as pK's back in the line-up, Bouillon will go back t 3rd pairing minutes.

If you were in Therrien's shoes, short term (assuming Subban's back soon), would you rather give these minutes to Kaberle? For better or worse, I'd give them to Bouillon too. I'd rather keep Kaberle's minutes well-spread (if that's even possible), and also make sure Emelin gets the right matchups toughness-wise.

The best news of the start of the season for Therrien is Diaz. His play warrants more minutes, which will enable Therrien to reduce Bouillon's icetime.
