And he's certainly not as good as Bouillon, who would be good enough to play on the top-4 on a lot of teams. I don't get what some people have against Bouillon. Is it because he speaks french?
I disagree. I think 44DD needs a certain time to adapt to this team, and also get used to playing more. The guy was used for 23min last game, he hasn't seen over 20min in a game since 2010. Give him some time.
But overall, I think he's been pretty good. He usually takes simple decisions, and moves the puck out effectively.
I'm sure he'll keep improving.

As for Bouillon, put him in a #4 position and he'd struggle. As a 6th Dman, he's done a good job.
