I see this as a solid insurance policy signing. We can still bring up Tinordi next year and have Bouillon as a 7th D - and if Tinordi happens to need more time in the AHL or if one of our other Dmen gets injured, we can fill the gap with a very capable defenseman in Bouillon. It's only 1 year, too.
It's for 1 year so i have zero issues with this signing. Cube is decent depth and if MB and MT believe that he help the kids both on and off the ice then it's a plus.
I wouldn't mind re-signing Armstrong for 1 year as the 13th forward either for the same reasons above. Having a good room and good character guys is important to a team no matter what the nay sayers will say.
