What happens with the AHL?
 
With hockey coming back, training camp et all normally a lot of the AHL guys get the call so they can get a look.

I suppose the habs can still call them all up but that will essentially leave the dogs with no players for the week.

Do they just call-up a select few that they think can make the team (Leblanc, Galchenyuk) or do the whole bunch get the nod?

Bad Natey 01-06-2013 10:04 AM

Probably just players who have a chance at the team.

Probably just St-Denis, Blunden, and Leblanc.

Palushaj and Geoffrion would but both are injured.

Aurel Joliat 01-06-2013 10:06 AM

Dumont deserves to be at the big camp.

Habs 4 Life 01-06-2013 10:06 AM

There won't be a regular camp so the team is pretty much set, just expect call ups when injuries happen. And to be honest maybe besides Leblanc but the rest are better off staying there all year

Marc the Habs Fan 01-06-2013 10:06 AM

Leblanc does not deserve a call-up.

Dumont should be at camp especially since Nokelainen is reportedly out with injury (Stubbs tweeted it).

If Dumont is in the NHL, the Dogs will be even more ugly to watch with that center line.

What happens is we don't have to watch that garbage team play anymore. Now we have a garbage NHL team to worry about!

Dumont has looked really good the last few weeks. If you're right about maybe not having to clear waivers, I wouldn't be surprised if they don't call anyone up for the camp and just run with the guys we have.

Dumont is exempt from waivers either way since this is only his 3rd year (assuming waiver rules stay the same). We can call him up as many times as we want.

I see Dumont making the lineup eventually but or this year we already have a pest in Armstrong

Pax Macioretty 01-06-2013 10:26 AM

Dumont is the only player I bring up. Tinordi and Beaulieu are playing awesome hockey right now, but there's no need to have them playing against even more tougher opposition right away, we have 8 D's with NHL contracts, let them dominate a tad longer.

Way too many d signed for St-Denis to have a chance.

If he has to clear waivers - he's got a chance. From reports before the season, MTL was worried about losing him if they sent him down.

I see Dumont and Blunden and Gallagher and Leblanc at training camp at forward positions. I think Gallagher and Leblanc would benefit from a complete year in the AHL. A forward that I didn't name but I like a lot is Bournival this guy's forecheck is crazy he doesn't produce a lot this year but I think in a couple of years he will be in the Canadiens line up.

St-Denis is the only defenceman I see cracking Habs line up. Beaulieu and Tinordi have to learn their trade in the AHL but I would invite them at the camp so they can measure up with the competition.

I think it is a good thing for the DOGS that the lock out is over. The line up was a little to green for this lock out improve AHL especially at defence position. I think they will be more able to compete with other teams now.

overlords 01-06-2013 11:58 AM

Noke is still hurt, supposedly. Would be fun to see Dumont get a few games in. Then again, Gomez. Would be equally hilarious to see Gomez steal potential games from a p'tit gars de chez nous.

NHL, I missed you.

The AHL folds as per the CBA.

surprise no mention of Ellis

He should also be invited at camps but he will likely be in the first cut if he goes to camp. Habs defence are already in game shape aside from Gorges and Subban. I think there is to many experience defencemen in front of him.

What are the chances Gallagher gets an invite?

I think he should be invite. There is no spot open for him in the line up be he can steal one.

Yeah he's the only actual player that deserves a shot at it let's hope that he can get into the lineup even tough his small size might handicap him.

montreal 01-06-2013 01:26 PM

If camp opens on the 9th, Hamilton plays only 1 game between the 9th and 14th, so perhaps they bring up a few players but I don't think it would be many since i'm sure they will want to have enough players to dress for the game on the 11th vs Rochester. So not sure if any of the rookies would get the call, or perhaps just one or two.

During a Dogs game on sportsnet the announcers said that they were told that Blunden would have been one of the first callups had the lockout not happened. So perhaps he's someone they will look at along with Dumont and St-Denis.

I just hope Leblanc stays in the AHL and someone force-feeds him some food every two hours.
