For those who hate these deals, what exactly do you want today? Montreal is in a bit of a rebuild, last thing they need is to overpay for good, not great, players and become Calgary east, at least as far as I'm concerned.

It's no coincidence that these two players have played for Michel Therrien in the past.

I believe Bouillon won a Calder Cup with Therrien as his coach.

Yeah, these feel like piddly moves when we absolutely need something big(ish). I have a weird feeling it's going to be Doan, even if I'm praying for Parise.

Then what good is Boullion? Might as well play Diaz and Weber on the right side if you're focused on a rebuild.

Seems like MB is only signing guys that Therrien is personally requesting.

he is a better player for what we need over Kaberle and Weber, brings stability and leadership. Not the prettiest player out there. But good value

Gorges - Subban
Markov - Emelin
Bouillon - Diaz?

No, but I ****ing hate Bouillon. Totally overrated, he's a massive scrub.

This makes all of Bergevin's moves so far look worse. He likes bargains and feel-good coach-brownnosers. Bouillon doesn't belong on this team, he was terrible in his last stint and we have too many players as it is.

And no one can say that Kaberle is worse than Bouillon. Or Diaz doesn't have potential to outshine him.

I luv this signing so much... Just because of the negative over reactions on this board now.

Relax. It's only a #6 or #7 d-man, signed for ONE season, who gonna help our youngsters, and stabilize the D like Gill was doing before.

The guy is all-heart and guts.
