The Habs org. won't take the chance of losing another franco for Mr. Potato....
I like what Ferland's shown during the pre-season as well. Would be a real shame to lose him to waivers.

That said, I sense that the direction is not happy with the 7th defenseman situation - especially given that none of those up for the job have stood out and now Bouillon is out until around December. Maybe a minor trade is in the works implicating some of our forwards to obtain a bottom-pairing guy? That could alleviate the bottle-neck at forward and prevent needless loss to waivers. Anyway, we'll see...
