I think he'll fill the bottom pair quite well alongside Dandenault in a limited role. I'm a Coté believer.

So far all this means is we might need to trade for depth during training camp if none of Bouillon and Streit look like they'll start the year. Maybe Bob will choose to do so sooner, but that doesn't mean we should go after a top-4 Dman, because Bouillon himself is no top-4.
Me too. He didn't play much last season, but when he did, he really impressed me. I think he can go as high as a #5 D in this league (or on the Habs) if he can give a good effort every game.
