Good stuff happening.
After signing Colby Armstrong, the Canadiens then added defenceman Francis Bouillon (1-year, 1.5 million) and left-winger Brandon Prust (4-years, 10 million). Bouillon played nine seasons with the Habs between 1999 and 2009 before joing the Preds, and has always been a solid and smart guy on the blueline. Although he’s small, he plays big. He’s a strong little bugger.
Brandon Prust is a hardrock left winger from the Rangers, and this adds grit in a big way. The Hockey News has this to say about him. “Loves to get in the face of opponents. Solid defensive instincts, aggressive forechecker, and excellent penalty-killer. An outstanding team guy that leads by example. He’ll rumble with anyone.”
Marc Bergevin and co. are changing things up.
