Boudreau Im dissappoint.

Sami has NHL caliber skill, and he'll be back better and stronger.
Winning games doesn't mean you don't make adjustments. In this case Lovejoy was picked up, and he makes more sense for the role Anaheim has available.

Sami has NHL caliber skill, but that isn't the same as being an NHL player. It's the latter that he needs to show. Boudreau probably didn't feel comfortable having to cut the 3rd D pairing's ice time just so Vatanen could play, but he felt the need to do so to avoid putting Vatanen in a bad spot.
