Purge of the old Francos

Most of them were charity cases, anyway. Now if they can lose Bouillon and Dagenais.....

Bouillon i have no problem as a 6th/7th d-men but please more more PP or PK time for him .

Dagenais i think the team have the option to keep him or not ... i could care less if he goes as he's not consistent .

While we're on the topic of foreign players, who could forget that samba-dancing Brazilian, Robyn Regehr?

Or that Venezuelan Rick Chartraw ? Or that Asian phenom, the Taiwanese Rod Langway ? The Q's, Perreault's,Juneau's all served their purpose, they were signed when the talent pool was empty and bought time until a new direction could be started. They did their jobs, they were well paid, seems like a win win to me. I remember AS being interviewed by Melnick shortly after replacing Houle. He said 'Mitch, we need players'. Simple as that, they needed NHL players. As to their native tongue, why make it an issue unless you have a particular ax to grind.

Bouillon was clearly better than Rivet this year. Lucky for Rivet that the playoff exist.

Bouillon should not play on the PP but this guy have intensity and give his 110% each game I like that.
Bouillon in my mind his a Quebekers!!! Not an American....

Personnally, I prefer Bouillon and Begin than Traverse and Darby....

Great point mcphee. It's amazing how people forget what the team really looked like before AS signed these guys.

I agree. Those players brought us to the second round twice and we could have easily gone farther both times (ok, maybe just in 2002...).
