Please, boucher is like a cone out there so are Komi and O'Byrne if they're not carefull... Small, skill and fast forwards would pass them easily... haven't you learn nothing from last year Philly's defense?
I prefer smaller stronger d-men like Bouillon or meaner like Emelin.... to complement the bigger d-men.
...and I still don't get why you want to get rid of Bouillon, since december he has been very solid... he just has to play 16min or less, that's it...
First off, Emelin and Bouillon aren't right handed and if you would've read my posts with some attention, you would've seen my contention that we DO need a 2nd or 3rd pairing RH Dman. So at least stay consequencial to my assertion, as neither Emelin nor Bouillon will be good on the opposing side.
Secondly, we have a profusion of left-handed Dmen both on the club and in the farm, that is why I'd get rid of Bouillon especially since his stock has risen, nothing against the player, I actually like him a lot, and if we didn't have that many young players coming up, I'd keep him, so pipe down, I'm not dissing him.
Thirdly, your assertion about not learning anything from Philly's defense is pretty laughable as the D I've shown is a pretty mix of both size and skill. Look at the players on the left side, your argument is pathetic. Komi is far from being a cone, and Boucher on a 2nd pairing wouldn't be a defensive liability, especially if coupled with Hammer.
That's not really the same thing. They've actually scored the most now with Ottawa. Anyway, I'm sorry if this has already been posted, I looked for it, but I'm sure most people already knew anyway, I just wanted to react to it somewhere.
