I think I like Bouillon a little more than you do, just going on comments you've made about him, going back to last season. If we don't sign anyone...is he an ideal second pairing defenseman? No, but really, was Hamhuis last season, when he spent 90 percent of the time paired with Klein? Everyone was quick to blame Klein for Hammer's subpar play...but he made his own contribution to that mess.
