Francis Bouillon signed to a one-year extension by the Canadiens
Hmmm... Tomas Kaberle will be amnestied this summer. We have to guess that Yannick Weber is not long for this world. So Francis becomes a cheap movable piece, he can be a third-pairing guy, or even move to the pressbox as a seventh defenceman when the Hamilton youth corps can't be denied any longer.
He's been nothing but solid and good value in this surprising season. The Antichambre guys were talking last night about how important it is for a team to have a road warrior veteran presence to act as big brother to younger defencemen trying to make their way into the NHL.
