That's awesome. I really liked him in the Memorial Cup. Just a great down low presence. He can be the Habs version of Dwight King or Jordan Nolan.

Uwey 07-06-2013 12:37 PM

Nailers bound.

The EGG Line 07-06-2013 12:37 PM

Don't know much about him, but he does have great stats.

FlyingKostitsyn 07-06-2013 12:37 PM

He's 6'03''. At least the smurf watch will go easy on that one!

Tyson 07-06-2013 12:38 PM

Undrafted overager, these guys rarely pan out. 6'3 212 pound captain of the Memorial Cup winners has some intrigue though.

Easy there. Calm down.

Respeck 07-06-2013 12:40 PM

Basically trade yesterday ends up being Fournier and Parros for Lefebrve and a 7th since we opened up another contract spot... looks good to me.

Sweeney 07-06-2013 12:41 PM

good things, now sign MacAulay

Hope Of Glory 07-06-2013 12:41 PM

Good news, at the very least he'll be able to help the Dogs.

Analyzer* 07-06-2013 12:42 PM

Once WTK and CS find out they'll probably be all kidding.

I think Whitesnake really wanted this guy signed, too, but I could be mistaken.

Could be that I'm slow, but how did trading Lefebvre for Parros and a draft pick open up a roster spot?

Yes, because I overreacted by saying he could be a 3rd line guy that can get 20-30 points in an NHL season? Clearly I need to calm down.

Marc the Habs Fan 07-06-2013 12:43 PM

Basically, I think he's a 3rd liner at worst in the AHL. If you look at the Dogs depth chart...they basically have like 8 forwards right now, so signings are needed.

He could be a hidden gem in terms of NHL potential. I also liked him quite a bit at the Memorial Cup.

And he's big. And a local kid.

andy28 07-06-2013 12:43 PM

Lack of first name in thread title makes him sound like one of these celebrities who uses one name.

Cher, Drake, Fournier.

NobleSix 07-06-2013 12:44 PM

Looks good to me. The only question is whether he will play for Hamilton, or Wheeling. Wheeling i would think, no?

Edit: I see that Hamilton only has 8 forwards? Which could be a sign we see Fournier in Hamilton.

That 07-06-2013 12:45 PM

I'm a fan of Fournier, good signing.

Big, strong, hard working player AND he can fight. Pretty good scorer too, but I don't see him becoming point producer in the NHL.

More than likely Hamilton.

I forgot the poster, but someone who watches the Mooseheads said they remembered a game where a player went after MacKinnon, Fournier stepped in and after the fight MacKinnon gave Fournier a big hug and the team (Mooseheads) were all pumped.
