given the sweepstakes the hype machine/his agent have created, I'd rather not see the Habs sign him.
hard to imagine that he'll be able to step into the NHL and contribute immediately, he may, but it's certainly not a gurantee.
with all of the young forwards we already have jockeying for top minutes/pp time, I'd hate to see us bring in someone and have the staff obliged to give him a bigger "leash" on account of his contract/inability to send him down.
