Found March 20, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
The Habs continue to truck along, having gained yet another point in yesterday's OT 3-2 loss to Buffalo. A few quick thoughts: The Bouillon signing is a great move. Marc Bergevin is clearly a chemistry guy, and believes in the leadership present in the room. Bouillon is a big part. Well done, M. Bergevin. Jarred Tinordi belongs. I was at Saturday's game against New Jersey, and for a kid his age, he has poise. He's good with the puck - an errant delay of game penalty last night aside - and has a decent shot. As his body fills out, he is going to be a physical beast. The Habs did well bringing him up slowly, and I suspect he'll contribute down the stretch this year. Brendan Gallagher is going to win the Calder. This kid isn't slowing down - if anything he is getting better. The Habs are winning despite less than stellar Carey Price goaltending. He isn't on right now - he has been at times, but not lately. If he gets hot come April, watch out.  ...

Bouillon back?

As per RDS during the intermission this evening, the Canadiens are currently working on an extension for defenceman Francis Bouillon. This may come as a surprise to many, as Boullon is seen as a depth player on the Habs, but he's a fan favourite, a hard worker, and never complains about his role. I suspect Bergevin is approaching this with the understanding Bouillon may be...

Habs Sign Francis Bouillon For One More Year by   Steven Ellis

The Montreal Canadiens have signed Francis Bouillon to a one year contract worth $1.5 million.
