And I think we agree on most of the points above, we're just wording them differently. The only thing I don't really agree with is the term "easily replaceable", because IMO the only defensemen in our system who can bring the stuff that Bouillon has are Valentenko, Subban and Emelin. None of which are nearly ready.
And outside our system you're going to pay as much for it, if not more. Lilja (someone brought him up), as much as I like him, isn't as good as Bouillon and can't step into a 2nd pairing role if needed. I value versatility more than $500k of capspace.
Again, in a really deep team, he wouldnt be in the top 6. I guess we'll just agree to disagree on Bouillon. I like his passion and heart but he doesnt have the talent or the size to be an effective defensman.
Hes a bottom pairing guy who should only play 15 mins a game max IMO.
