Huet and Bouillon

Last year at the same time, Huet and Bouillon were making around $1M between the two of them. This year, in order to make sure these two players stayed in Montreal, BG had to shell out very close to $5M. With the difference of $4M you can get a pretty good UFA.

Have Huet and Bouillon improved that much in a year or do they deserve that kind of money thrown their way mainly because they have reached the magic age of 31.

I don't know but, one thing is for sure, there'll be some additional pressure on both of them. They better deliver the goods this year or the boo birds at the Bell center could be quicker on the trigger to show their discontent. By being too demanding salarywise, players, in a way, can prevent their team from getting the ressources needed to achieve its overall goals.
