Francis Bouillon will miss first month

Francis Bouillon will miss AT LEAST the first month of the season due to his surgery. Can't wait to see Mark Streit play...

Habs played their best hockey of the year when Boullion was out, so I'm not exactly worried about the impact of his loss.

Although I like him, it won't be so bad to see what streit/cote can do.

Funny how this comes out after his big contract is signed!!

I wonder if little Boullion would have hit the big bucks had the knee injury been public? Wasn't the whole rush to sign him before he becomes an UFA because of potential suitors after his services? Well, I don't think a whole lot of teams would have been looking for an undersized defenceman with a knee injury!

I think the contract should be annulled! I like Boullion. I think he is a great asset to the Habs. But @ $2M a season, he is grossly overpaid. And considering this little bit of news that comes out AFTER the big signing, it is very, very fishy!!!

Thank the agents for this little gem!

Well, that would mean he'll be unable to play for around 12-13 weeks from the date of his surgery. That implies that his surgery was more serious than the simple scope I had anticipated.

Whole of October is only 11 games, not a big deal really and quite frankly losing Bouillon from our top 6 defence makes me least worried. Cote and Dandenault will make decent third pairing, dont worry.

so where's all the dont worry he'll be ready for camp guys now ?

now it's dont worry he only out for the first 11 games ....lolol


i said from day 1 when he had the surgery to look for a replacement for frank ...


as for mark streit some think tendonitis is a simple thing to get rid of..let me suggest having it in BOTH knees is something that is serious ... IT CAN REQUIRE SURGERY


bob will have to make a move that is certian and lets hope franks knee heals properly and doest require more surgery


the lack of respect for boullion and what he means to the club is amazing to me .
the guy on many night logged 25 mins a game .. there was even a few where he had 30 minutess a night ... again i like cote but to anyone who thinks he can eats boullion minutes your dreaming

Tony Marinaro just reported it's more like 12 weeks.
He's due back around the month of November.
I don't think it will affect the team all that much, he's good , but not a major factor in winning.I'm expecting Streit to improve on his rookie year, as J.P. Cote.Habs blueline will be just fine!

I dont know why you are so trade / waiver wire happy. I dont get it.

All good organizations look inside for solutions before looking outside. You wanna always go get someone else before giving someone within the org a chance. And then you are the first one to complain when we lose guys like Beauchemin because he never got a chance.

Because it wasn't publicly known doesn't mean Gainey wasn't aware of it

Cote does not need to play 25 minutes per night. Hes there to fill in from the bottom when Komisarek or Dandenault play more. I dont mind having Bouillon among our top six defencemen, but hes far from unreplaceable unlike Koivu, Kovalev or Markov.

We also played mostly teams under .500 during that time.

i was one of the one's and there was a few others that was
upset Beauchemin got away from us the day it happened

again i dont see why it so hard to understand . i said i like cote i have nothing against him i want him to make our team this year BUT he cant play 20 - 25 mins a night that isnt realistic . cote as ruff as he is has had issue in the ahl also ( injuries)

AGAIN everyone thinks boullion is easy to replace GIVE THE GUY SOME @$@# RESPECT ...

you look at frank boullion and his time on the ice .
can you honeslty sit there and tell me jp cote can eat these kind of minutes as a rookie with 8 games experience who averaged 10 to 11 mins a night when he was here. im all for given guys there chance but then there is reality

i dont wanna hear oh frank shouldnt be playing those many minutes anyways .THE FACT IS gainey /carbo did play him that many minutes alot of nights .

loook at this game frank took over 32 mins that night
Nov 22, 2005 vs. ATL-32:38 mins

could you play jp cote 32 mins in a game ? i dont think so and thats what im saying . everyone say oh cote will replace boullion GOOD LUCK with that ...

And that the reason we struggle into the playoffs every year. The fact that a guy of Bouillons calibre plays that many minutes tells how shallow our depth on d really is.

Also Bouillon is easily replaceable when he was injured towards the end of last season Streit and Simpson came in for replacement and we went on a huge winning streak, over the 15 games Cube was gone we were 11w 4l.

I like Bouillon's heart... but first, he's the only contract I'm mad at Gainey, cause I think he's way overpaid

Second, he's 31-to-be in october... and it's only since 2003-2004 season that's he's been able to play a full schedule. Yeah, perhaps he's a late bloomer, but I don't care really, he's always been a fringe NHL player before becoming a 6th-7th D, on the Habs, and he won't be better than that. And 25-30 mins ?? Damn we were in REAL trouble to need him that much...

Third, J-P Cote, and Mark Streit... for Streit, well, I still think he can be better than he was, and I'm all for playing him as much as we can, cause he has a good shot, likes to pinch in offensively, and while he's small, IMO he's underrated physically.

For Cote, I think he could replace Bouillon on a regular basis. For the one who said he couldn't log Bouillon's minutes (mckenzie ?), you have to remember that in order for a player to develop, he has to play. Bouillon has been a band-aid for some years now, I think it's time to use our inside assets, like AH said. Cote is 6 inches taller and nearly 20 pounds heavier, skates well and is a rock defensively.

Where was Bouillon when he was 24 ?? With the Habs... playing 29 games... he wasn't very effective, really. He developped, somehow... now it's time to develop another player, and if he's better than Bouillon, then all the better !

Concerning his contract I think it was well known what injuries he had and what he had to do to correct it.
There's no reason to back out of a multi-year deal because he will miss 1 month in that span.

you are telling me you thought boullion didint play well last year playoffs? the defnese had nothing to do with us losing to carolina period!

the fowards couldnt score that's the problem .

that 11-4 stat when he was out is as usless as 3 month old bread to be honest it means nothing

i agree sxe

we commited long term 3 years

1 month isnt nothing to get all up in arms about and rip up contract over. the habs seen boullion take that hit last year against pittsburgh
its a wonder it didnt do even more damage than it did .
