That is where the hate comes from.
As for Boullion, in his first go around with the Habs, he was a patch. They never got the player they needed, Boullion played well enough. This time around, again he is a patch, but the Habs have more options.
I have no problem with Boullion. He is an honest player. Does not panic, moves the puck ok, and will not be intimidated. He is a hell of a lot better than many defencemen the Habs have had on their blueline since he left.
