I look at guys like Francis Bouillon, i've never seen him fly on the ice like he's been doing lately, he's allowed to support the offense and just take off. And the last time i've seen him do that was in the American Hockey League with the Quebec Rafales. It's like he has the freedom to express his talent for the first time in the NHL. It's neat how not only it helps the offense but it also add a fourth man sometime to pressure the forwards from the other teams. I've seen more than a few times against Carolina, Andrei Markov esp. and others stopping the Canes' play with that pressure. Pretty impressed overall.
I've been impressed with bouillon's habit of rushing up and breaking free, but once he does that the play usually dies on his stick. Dude just does not have the puck skills to be relied upon offensively. I hope to never see him or Gorges on the PP again.
