    I guess you beat me to the post. I just submitted this article as well…lol

    Good signing! But the question is will Gainey stop signing d-men here, like he stated he would if he signed Boullion, or will he still look for a true #1 blue-liner like many think he should.

    What affraid me is if Bouillon gets 1,8 per season, what will Markov or Rivet will ask when it will be there turn in some years !!!

    I don’t know, I don’t see 1.8M as overpaying him. He was one of Montreal’s best d-men last year, some would say he was the best on the Habs. 1.8M a year isn’t bothering me very much at all.

    rivet might be able to command 2.5-3.0 mill, markov, 3.5-4.0 mill. thats only when though, next year, or 2 years from now?

  7. mtl_prince says:

    well, now are defense is set. need a center now big time!

    Ok he was a great speedy and gritty player ( like 5th in hits last year ) but 2 years ago he was waived. Nashville tried, he didn’t fit in. Now he has one decent year and 1.8 millions ?

    At least Gainey didn’t payed what Bouillon asked in the first place.

    Just hope he doesn’t “Brisebois” the Habs next year.

    Rivet is playing his last season with the Canadiens.

    Gainey won’t re-sign him to a new contract.
