He doesn't necessarily deserve to be bashed, but his play does not warrant many compliments.

He makes a lot of mistakes on the ice as well, but that's to be expected from a declining NHL'er that's in the twilight of his career.
That's far from being as bad as you guys say. He's not any worst than Diaz for the number of mistake he makes. And I'd rather a d-man who mistakingly scores in his own net in a win, than a guy that almost gets one of his teammates killed with yet another one of his soft, stupid passes.

Bouillon gets bashed a LOT around here. To me, he's your normal 6th d-man. Him and Murray aren't any more of a pain to watch than most of the 3rd pairings in this league. Even though I wouldn't mind Pateryn to be on the 3rd pairing instead of Bouillon.
