My logic goes like this. Since he is playing for Bulldogs, he must be under contract with the Bulldogs.. at least for this year. So if Habs like him, they can sign him when his contract is finished after this year. A 2 way deal, meaning the Habs want him to be in NHL sometime THIS season? I think guys like Chipper should be ahead of him in terms of depth chart. I think there is more to come with it. Maybe Gainey is going to make some kind of minor deal for another defenceman that involve one of our forwards?
For me, this signing does not make sense (not saying Desharnais is bad), my question is, why now?
If I'm not mistaken, didn't we sign him to make sure no one else does? Did he have like a 25 game try out or something?
