Avs coaches seem to like him and they play him. This from a team that hasn't had an enforcer play regularly for them in a decade. So it seems at least they value what he brings.

I might add, Bordeleau to Habs would make the coming Habs-Leafs games much more entertaining. He is a fierce guy.
This. After watching guys like David Koci and Peter Worrell for a few years, the Avs are happy to have a guy like Bordeleau. No one expects him to play all 82 games in a season, but it's nice to have a guy with size who isn't a major liability if he plays 7 minutes a game.
