Tinordi is not ready. Beaulieu looked better than him in his call-up, and beaulieu isn't ready yet either.

Play Murray the next few games. See how it goes. Maybe switch them around once in awhile if they are both doing ok, otherwise go with whoever is doing better. But we know it will just be Bouillon playing, Murray sitting, for whatever fleeting period of time remains before our next injury on D.

As much as I'm jonesing for a defensive overhaul featuring the upcoming prospects, I have to believe Tinordi will benefit more in Hamilton than in Montreal. We underestimate how much of this game is mental. Tinordi's confidence needs to match his body.

I voted to rotate Bouillon and Murray. Right now, Bouillon's been miles ahead (which doesn't say much), but I still think Murray is in his training-camp phase with timing and the team's system. He's better than what we've seen (how could he not be...) and has a role to fill.

Play Murray against big/strong/physical teams. (Phi, Bos, Tor, etc.)
Play Bouillon vs the speed/less physical teams (as he is not as slow as Murray). (TB, Fla, Car, etc.)

Play Bouillon, Sit Murray, Leave Tinordi in the minors for the rest of the year. Call Murray up when we need a physical force.

Murray - Diaz looks more balanced to me as a 3rd pair than Bouillon - Diaz. They complement each other better. In an ideal world it would be Tinordi or Beaulieu and neither Murray or Bouillon, but unless they really progressed in Hamilton since the start of the season, both looked completely lost in their own zone.

Where is the option "trade for a better bottom D"?

I don't think Tinordi would be any worse than Bouillion is. I'd play him on the 3rd pairing and let him make his mistakes.

Play Bouillon. He's a better skater than Murray or Tinordi, handles the puck better and is physically solid.
Yes, his offensive instincts are terrible but he's a 3rd pairing D. Just get him off the power play already.

Play Murray, his physicality complements the rest of our D, and with Emelin eating minutes now we can use Murray more sparingly. Cube is a good 7th because he does many different things just 'okay'.

None of the options are ideal, but I would rotate them depending on the oppo e t and who is playing better at the time.

Seriously. That is one thing I don't understand. How Bouillon still get used on the PP.
And Emelin had a great year in the KHL on the PP.
