At the moment, I'd put Bouillon ahead of Kaberle. He might have better puck-distribution skill, but he has trouble holding the zone and never pitches in beyond shooting and passing from afar.

Plus, removing Bouillon means less defensive play.

If we are to have role-players in our lineup, the idea of a physical and tiring 2nd Power Play lineup would be a good idea. Desharnais/Cole/Patch are still pretty good regarding puck possession and forcing the opponents to run all around the end zone.

PK/Bouillon are physical as well, and damn good at holding the zone, which would tire out the opposition even more.

The idea would be to create momentum out of the 2nd PP wave.
