You could say that about Souray too, though. All in all, for the offense Hainsey brings to the team, he's more useful than Bouillon. He couldn't be any worse in his own end.
With that being said, I'd give Bouillon another opportunity later this year. He had a tough game, but it's unfair to judge him only basing ourselves on a single game.
I thought he wasn't that bad. He made the hits when he needed to, which led to us getting back the puck. He also cut "pass paths" (if that expression exists.. I'm talking about paths the other team could pass the puck by), I thought he was the best pairing with Brisebois in this match. He wasn't impressive, but did the job.
