Question for those that have been following his career and actually been watching him... is this guy NHL ready?
He seems like the type who will play great with great players, if you put him on a *****y team, he'll stand out but it wont look as great , meaning people watching will THINK he's not as NHL ready as he could be, the best way to tell if one is NHL ready isnt by excelling in the AHL but by testing how well they do IN the NHL

Its only been 3 games guys. As much as Therrien and Bergevin love Bouillon, if he costs them games, eventually they will have to adjust. In the end, their jobs are on the line if the team doesn't perform. They just want to give the veterans the benefit of the doubt for now but if it persists, we'll see guys like Bouillon get scratched eventually.
Its just how it works in any workplace. You can't blindly rely on inexperience and you don't dismiss experience because of a few games. Young guys are inconsistent, we'll see what happens throughout the season.
