I don't think he has the offensive awareness to play on the PP, he has the tools (powerful shot, decent passing) but he doesn't have the vision or the hands required to be given that role. As much as I dislike the idea of having Bouillon out there he does bring some positives like no turnovers and the ability to keep the play alive by keeping the puck in the zone. Emelin on the other hand, has much better tools than Bouillon but he's probably our worst defenseman when it comes to knowing when to pinch and when not to. He's also not the most confident guy with the puck, you can see he's hesitant sometimes when he's in control of the puck and that results to him messing up his pass or fumbling the puck. I know Therrien put him out there once earlier this season and it was a complete disaster, he lost the puck at the point and it lead to a breakaway against. Let him do his thing 5 on 5 and defensively but I don't think he's a viable option for us on the PP.
