Bouillon signed!

According to RDS, for 3 years.

Edit : According to CHFANS FORUM, Bouillon will receive 1,89M per season.

If it's really 1.89, that's an horrible contract.

If those are the numbers then that is a big contract for a 5-6 defenceman. I feel they could have found a similar players for less if they had waited for the free agent market to run its course a bit. Also for a bit more they likely could have found a better defenceman and improved the overall quality of the defence, not that it's bad to begin with. Montreal's lack of prospect depth at defence has really burned them here. If they had a younger player ready to step in at less than a million dollars i'm sure they would have let Bouillon walk.

Holy ****, I don't like those numbers one bit... I'm not usually one to complain about contracts, but this is terrible in my opinion.

I agree I would not have given him this much, one can only hope he plays up to it for the whole three years.

Can anyone explain me why Begin only received 1 million then Bouillon gets two ? Bouillon is NOT more valuable to the team then Bégin.

Horrible contract. My hopes of landing Kuba or Kubina are over I guess.

Gainey caved in...very dissapointing.

3.7 M locked in our bottom pairing. I think I am going to be sick.

edit: Our cap is now at 29.675 M for 15 players I believe.

Well, BG said as much. I think he was intent on not participating in the dman bidding war that will happen.

basically I don't think Gainey thinks he can get a defenseman as good as Bouillon for 1.89 M $. With Bouillon signed, we now have all our defenseman under contract and we can concentrate on getting a forward.

It is terrible.

However the fact that it's for a player who always give his 100 % make it easier to swallow the pill i suppose..........

In any case , it's still an overpayment and i don't like the length (3 years) at that price either.

At least it's not going to be possible to overpay for him since he's probably going to ask for the max.

We know what to expect in Bouillon's case so it's not a bad signing as for, even though the guy signed a 3 year contract, you know he won't sit on it 'cause he's just not like that. Let's just say that the guy played perfectly the ''Québécois factor'', the ''I'm probably the best d-men you've got when it comes to a mix between physicality and transition game''.

I just can't believed it money wise though, I really can't see a team offering him more than 1.5 but anyway it's done.

Congrats Frankie!

Too much. The guy deserve around 1.5M but BG didnt have the choice to sign him - at high price - because he speak french and many stupid fans would start crying if we let bouillon go and that sad
