In fact Im even willing to bet that Valentenko takes O'byrne's spot before the season starts.... And Im sorry Bouillon is not worth 1.8M maybe a couple of years ago he was but not now.

Sorry, but I don't think Valentenko will be a regular until 09-10. He will probably have a couple of stints with the Habs in the upcmoing season. Even the orgnization have said that he's not entirely ready, so unless he really makes a very strong impression at training camp, he will be heading to his second season in the AHL. Remember, he only has one season of experience in the North-American style of hockey and was injured for a good part of the season. I think that Carle is also a bit ahead of him and might have longer stints this year with the big club as they will need an offensive minded dman, especially since he's right-handed and our two most offensice dmen are left handed.
