As per Lavoie on RDS between the 2nd and 3rd period.


Really?

Why?

Dunno, between this game and resigning Cube... feels like 2012

Thank goodness it isn't.

I've got no problem with Bouillon as the 7th D for 850K.

Come on.

Yeah, as a 7th defenceman, but we know that will never happen as long as Therrien is coach.

I think we can safely assume Kaberle is gone. Probably Weber too. That leaves:

Gorges-Subban
Markov-Emelin
???-Diaz
Bouillon-???

...in this scenario, I have absolutely no problem re-signing the Cube. He's a reliable NHL dman, there aren't too many of those lying around.

He's been solid all year, probably wants to retire as a Hab. Pretty much guarantees Kaberle won't be back too.

Why not? He's worth keeping around 1 more year.

It's sad he's so old though... I loved this guy when he was at his prime.

Modern day Rudy..

I dont get it, we have a good top 4-5, why not give the last 2 spots to kids like Tinordi?

Tinordi hasn't clearly outplayed Bouillon, and he's waiver ineligible. Granting spots to waiver ineligible kids based on potential takes away from a team's depth. Anyway, even if the team is healthy all year (they won't be), there's nothing stopping Tinordi from stealing Bouillon's job midseason.

Because you want the kids to be playing, not sitting out as a 7th d.

We need more LD and less size.

IMO this so that he replaces Kaberle as the man in the pressbox next season, except he'll play more often than Kaberle does now. At MOST it's a 2-year extension.

Cubes is a great, inexpensive depth player. It is up to the kids to play their way into the line up.

Good move, Worst that can happen is that we trade him for assets. Nothing wrong with that.

I have no problem with that. He's a good vet and has played surprisingly well this season. He also seems to be helping Tinordi a lot... Good guy to have around.
