I don't think he'll be an elite player, but as far as checkers go, he's pretty close, especially for the dollar value. I noticed that no one so far has come up with a better 3rd line LW (especially under 2 mil) than Bulis, eventhough I know there are 1 or 2. I'd say he has proven he can be a great checker (look at the assignments and roles Montreal used him in). He's also in the top 60 scoring LWers, so he's hardly a slouch despite an off year. That means there are teams he'd play 2nd line for if you went by scoring and, given his checking, would be considered a top notch addition for a third (checking, I guess) line. In any event, it would seem as though he's underated given the differences of opinion in spite of the facts.
