Yay! Always liked him. 5'8'' of grit and toughness, awesome team-first guy.

I really like this signing. Adds some sand paper on the back end and gives his all for a smaller player. *thumbs-up*

Never liked Bouillon, which is good though......makes the Habs more despised for me anyways.

For me it means more defense, more sand-paper, and less Yannick Webers, which is good.

Frankie is a fire hydrant. Good to have him back, he'll fight when he has to and won't back down. Hits hard for a little guy as well... Habs will likely move a defenseman at this point. They've got too many now.
