Didn't he sign with the Rangers a couple weeks ago? Or did that fall through?

I wouldn't boo Begin because he actually got traded to Dallas before. So he got moved around before signing as a FA.

Bouillon on the other hand was overpaid, he was injured too much, and now would freely sign with the enemy.
Boo his ass!

What am I saying...Boo Begin too!! ******* the Bruins!

I think I would cut Cube some slack. It's not like he's a top flight defenseman with many teams making him offers. When you're at his level, you take whatever offer you can get, regardless if it's with a rival team or not.

I understand, but I doubt only 1 team shown interest to Bouillon. As bad some people say he is, he's still good enough to get more than 1 team interested in him.

You could be right, I don't have access to the offers that Cube has received. I was just making a point that for example I would understand people booing Komisarek, a lot more than I would understand them booing Cube.

He seemed to have had the Rangers interested.

Before I went away, I thought for sure that would be a done deal. I wonder what happened to change all that.

Weren't we the only team to give him an offer, back a few years. I remember something like this or was it no one claimed off waivers ?

Absolutely, Komisarek will be booed forever.
I'm not a booer anyway, but I'm just predicting how our ever-so loving crowd will react.

I liked Bouillon's big hits. His only problem was getting injured too much. He was a decent bottom pairing guy.

You guys tell me: As a 6th or 7th defenseman, is this an okay signing for the Bruins?

By getting Begin and Bouillon, I guess they want to send a message.

this is bound to confuse ruins fans. i mean another francophone - and an ex hab to boot? how in the world will they continue to make xenophobic racist remarks about habs' french players now?

if they're resourceful enough to pee on hab fans during playoff games, i'm sure they'll find a way

I thought Montreal was the Leagues laughing stock according to the Northeast rivals?

Now we have Rivet in Buffalo, Komisarek in Toronto and potentially Cube in Boston too...am I missing something?

Bouillon signing in Boston would be a bit weird, but whatever they can feel free to keep signing our garbage.

I'm glad Dandeneault is not coming back even at 750k. He's the ultimate nothing player. Not bad enough to make an ass of himself, but at the same time doesn't really bring anything to the table other than a bit of up and down speed. Definitely time to move on.

If it was up to me, I would give them a standing ovation! They gave it all for the bleu blanc rouge. Bouillon, Kosto, Koivu ......hell, even dandy! lol. Gainey didn't need them anymore ( I still think we need begin tho) , If Begin or Bouillon gets booed for going to the bruins , I will be very disappointed
