GOOD : he'll be OK
GREAT : meaning no Breezer on the blue line!

No idea where you got that...

I remeber when we got our azz kicked vs Tampa the year they won the cup, Bouillon was our only good player in those four games.

Bouillon & Gorges have been a really good pair this year.

For a third pair, it's

Komi will be back for the real season. We're on our way for something special

It's funny how everyone likes Bouillon now...

He's a very sold third pairing defensman and I am happy we will have him for the playoffs!

No surprise. Bouillon isn't actually made from human bones like everyone else.

i'm almost angry he doesn't have a fracture since I have an irrational hatred towards the guy...However, he has been playing well recently and will be helpful-as much that hurts me to say-

Habs with Bouillon > Habs without Bouillon.

As simple as that. He might not be as important as Hamrlik but still, he solidifies our defensive corp and adds some solid bodychecking to a defense that doesn't hit a lot.

I feel more comfortable with him on the blue line than with Streit (except on the PP of course), or Brisebois.

Well, Brisebois played well in replacement.

But really, Bouillon/Gorges is what every team dream as a 3rd pairing. A pair that can take minutes so that the top pair isn't overwhelmed or overused, and a pair that won't put your team in trouble if you use it.

Few teams have the luxury of being able to say they can stick any pair of D down there in key moments and be confident in their ability to hold the line.

Bouillon gives the Habs that. He's +9 for god's sakes.

Thats overrating the guy quite a bit. I dont want to start another debate but in or out of the line-up, he's not a difference maker on this team. I remember 2 years ago the team went on a 10 game winning streak without him in the line up to make the playoffs. Is absence doesnt make a difference on why the team wins or loses. He's a great depth D-man to have around, nothing more.
