Bouillon, though, doesn't have a place on the Habs because we have no need for depth defensemen. We have 8 NHL-capable defensemen signed already, better question is to how to package some of them for upgrades to round out the top 4.
Call it uninformed ('cause yeah, that's me ) all you like, we can get down into the nitty-gritty of Bouillon if you like. I mean, we can start with how bad of a player you have to be to have a negative +/- on Nashville without holding down the actual hardest minutes against the best opposing players (Corsi/QualComp), or we can talk about how many games he's actually physically able to play each year, or we can talk about his age and the observable difference between his speed/agility/impact between his time in Montreal and now.

But while you decide how deeply you want to get in this with me, I'll leave you Bouillon's injury history for you to use in combination with his games played from hockey reference, just to make sure we're clear about whether or not his size actually is an obstacle or not, and then we can get into the skills, performance metrics, etc... If you're actually willing, of course.
