He shouldn't make the team IMO....he's not ready to play in the NHL yet.

He played decent and showed some flashes of brilliance during his time with the Habs, but he needs a couple of full seasons in Hamilton to hone his skills and build his confidence. He's going to be a good young player for the Habs, but not for 2 or 3 years at least. We have other options than Patches to start this season.

The last thing we need to do is rush another promising prospect. Look at what happened to Price because the organization decided to rush him instead of letting progress naturally. He might not bounce back from it....this year will tell the tale, but with Patches....there is no rush...let him play in the minors and when he's ready to play consistant hockey, he'll get called up.
