try to think of the difference it makes... like, are we a PO team with Cube and non PO team with Weber ? 4th to 6th in east with Cube, fighting for PO spot with Weber ? etc
now... would you sacrifice a younger player (whoever that is) for that little of a difference ? a difference that wil last at most one season ?
That exercise is compltely irrelevant.
Why would the Habs sign Bouillon if they didn't have a place for him in the lineup?
Besides, I'm pretty certain Bergevin knew the lockout was a possiblity.
To your question, the Habs team is better with Bouillon, and considering how close things are in the NHL, especially in what will be a short season, keeping Weber instead of Bouillon might cost a playoff spot.
I wouldn't sacrifice Gorges for Bouillon, though.
I mean, if the sole reason to keep Weber in the lineup is that he's younger, why not keep Beaulieu instead? At this point, both haven't showed they could be regular in the league...
