We have to be careful... playing hard and with some passion is what will help you go far into the playoff. Now that should not be the only element on which a contract shoudl be base and Bouillon, while being a player bringing that element, he is far from being the perfect Dman. I would love to keep Bouillon on this team in 6th dman role, but I'm all for letting him walk if he's asking for a top 4 Dman type of money... because he's not that good.

Also, we have to realise that if Bob really looking to sign a UFA Dman this summer, Bouillon will most likely become our 7th Dman (UFA, Markov, Komi, Souray, Rivet, Dandenault). You don't want that guy to tie up big money if he's not gona play on a regular basis.
