Bouillon has been fine. Armstrong... yeah, he's just taking up space. Not sure he's really better than Blunden, actually.
Anyway, it's a process. Obviously the Habs have Tinordi coming, and they just signed Prust. It'll get there. In the meantime, you work with what you have. Should be able to roll 4 lines and actually have an advantage over the other team that puts out a goon line. It's only a lack of execution on a few of our players that has negated this potential advantage.
I bet Gallagher will wish they had a bit more of an answer, though, he's really going to get himself into some "situations" playing like he is.
