Started off slow, has picked it up since the Wild have found lines that have worked effectively. Cullen and Setoguchi have been playing very well as of late and Bouchard has done his part here and there.

However, there's issues with Bouchard. For one, he's about one good hit from calling it a career due to concussions. He's a perimeter player to the T. Not all that strong on the wall but he is crafty. Has a good shot but refuses to use it. In the end, he'll have some games where he's a factor and makes everyone better. But he'll also have numerous games where he's nowhere to be found. And given his tendencies, he's not really a player I'd be comfortable with in the playoffs or vying for the playoffs.
