Well, honestly, I consider that a sign of either not watching enough hockey around the rest of the league, or not thinking about it long enough. Or showing Bouillon a lot of favour because he currently dons a Habs jersey. Never rule that one out. Of course, it comes down to how semantically deep you want to argue "clear better options".
I'd rule out Chicago and St. Louis as teams that would consider him an upgrade at #5/6 for starters, but that's not likely the end of the list if I thought about it for more than a second. New Jersey, Nashville, and San Jose also enter the conversation, imo, maybe even Vancouver, Winnipeg, Carolina, or Anaheim. Don't forget that you can't just add him "in a vacuum". Part of being an "upgrade" at the #5/6 position is being able to play competent hockey with the #5/6 beside you.
