Michaud was another great UFA signing like Danis. Both are young and have a lot to learn in the Pro game. Michaud is learning and has played reasonably well in Hamilton considering he started the year in the ECHL.
Habs management aren't writing Michaud off, they are making a weak position in prospects stronger and getting ready to let Fichaud and Damphousse move on. Fichaud isn't getting any younger and has no legit chance of ever getting back to the Big Show and Damphousee will be nothing more than a career minor leaguer.
We drafted 2 tenders last year in Halak and Heino-Lindberg so it is obviously a wekness the Habs are wanting to get ready for the future. Signing Danis only strengthens us for the future and for Hamilton for the next couple of seasons.
If we draft a centre or sign a college centreman do we write off Higgins or Plekanec? No, we just strengthen our teams future...BG, AS & TT are always looking ahead to tommorow not to today.
