Bouillon is easily a top 6 dman. I don't how those get the idea that he shouldn't be a top 6 have come to this conclusion. He's a great 6th dman, easily one of the better options. I loved the signing at the time and he's proven me right.
I'm not sure what some people's expectations for a 6th dman are, but Boulls will fill the role with ease.
What you mean perhaps is; Bouillon is filling that role with ease.
Which is true. At least in my opinion.
But you make it sound like it was a forgone conclusion. Not everyone
steps up their game in their mid to late thirties. Some players his age
actually slow down.
