Oullette (still has a chance), Boucher (unfortunately) and Niittymaki played great, I thought, in his first two starts, but it doesn't look like he'll not get his shot because of Mr. Bouncy Wall Robert Esche and *choke* Sean Burke. I know there's a bunch of names I'm forgetting, but it's the Alexandre Daigle syndrome, you can tout a guy all you want, but if he doesn't produce, what's it worth?
