Boullion shouldn't be there, but much like Desharnais, he's a Francophone and that will always be a factor in Montreal.
Cheap price for depth, Drewiske isn't a top 4 guy but he's not as bad as some would have you believe.
I really don't think them being francophone has anything to do with their ice time. DD maybe got a chance because of Carbo and he played great when the team sucked. Last year he wasn't the best, but he isn't a minor league player. Cube slowed down a lot last year, and I don't expect him to play much if others can prove they deserve the ice time more. Established players get the benefit of the doubt until a young guy can prove that they deserve to play over him.
Nothing to do with them being able to speak French.
