Come on, there are very few defensman in the league who can handle Jagr, let alone neutralize him.

Bouillon does do a few things well, and that's playing 1 on 1, he's very hard to get by and isn't easily fooled, he's also very good at blocking shots. However, he struggles in everything else, down low coverage, positionning, clearing the puck out of the zone, decision making, 1st pass, etc...

he's barely, an NHL defensman, barely

Disagree with your last three. His puck moving and decision making is definitely not a problem.

Bouillon kills any powerplay he's on, he's not a really good puck mover.

Really, when the Habs are on the PK and Bouillon's on, it happens evertime like clockwork that Bouillon will have the chance to clear the puck and he puts it directly on the opponents stick...he can't make a 1st pass to save his life, anytime he tries the puck is 3 feet off the ice...he doesn't respect his assignments, he's often chasing around trying to hit other players instead of focusing on his positionning...

I'm just happy Michel Therrien is an NHL coach again, that assures that should we put Bouillon on waivers one day, he'll be scooped and never heard from again.

If Streit go to the waiver, some team will pick him. It's obvious.

I hope that Streit plays in a other team in NHL. With such fans (you're not all the same) like in Montreal, it's awful to play here. Too (10x) negative

I would like Streit with the ducks....
Thanks for the info, his contractual status and the waivers bothered me... it's sad for both Streit and the team, I doubt he would complain about a 2 weeks ride with the Dogs.

And he plays with lots of heart... but you are right. He is barely an NHL defenseman.

I agree Bouillon displays more effort than those 3 but his lack of reach and wingspan makes it much tougher on him as a d-man.

As "good" as Francis is, I'd take Komisarek and Dandenault over him anyday. As for Streit, I'm not sold on him so far so I'd probably take Francis over him right now.

Yup, he definitely shows his heart and determination out there.

If I remember well, that did happen some times ago. Nashville scooped him, but we got him back in the off-season.
