Francis Bouillon

Penguins make Two-Way offer

LA PRESSE: Richard Labbe reports former Habs blueliner Francis Bouillon is expected to know the identity of his new team soon. The NY Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins are believed interested in Bouillon. He could have a new contract by the end of this week.

SPECTOR'S NOTE: It was erroneously reported earlier this week he'd signed with the Rangers. The Blackhawks and Penguins are in the market for affordable blueline depth so they'd be good alternatives for Bouillon if the Rangers deal doesn't go through.

Bouillon is considered small for an NHL defencemen but is never one to shy away from physical play. According to Pierre Houde, he is one of the strongest players of the Montreal Canadiens and the NHL, according to the team's official physical tests.
interesting if true... he will be 34 in october, i don't know if i would rather just take boucher at 600k as our 7th dman instead though. Still something to talk about during this down time... there are also still a number of FA wings out there that i'm hoping we take a look at and maybe invite to camp if nothing else.
