Same can be said with Boucher.
Can join the rush well (Bylsma's system) Can play the pt as a right hander on the second power play along side Gogo.
Liability in the defensive zone. Not strong enough and easily gets pushed off the puck.
+ Gritty player who isn't afraid to mix it up. Adds a little bit of a physical presence to the blue line.
- (as you said) Liability in the corners/in front of the net against forwards w/ size and power. Probably isn't as good as Boucher w/ jumping up on the play.
I don't think it really matters which guy comes in as our 7th. Whoever is cheaper gets the contract in my opinion.
