For some reason I could see the Habs claiming him. They only have 6 dmen right now in the AHL, he could go in and be in the top 4 in Hamilton. St.Denis would fall from the 6th position into a 7th scratch player, in case of injuries or rest.
I think this would be a good pick up for the Habs. If they go through the injuries they had last year, this guy could easily get called up. He has seen NHL playing time and in one of the most organized hockey styles of the Detroit Red Wings.
His cap hit wouldn't count towards the cap for you people that think it would could towards our 780K cap space. As long as he is in the AHL, his cap hit wouldn't count and we be a call up and insurance marker for the Hamilton squad as a few dman left to FA.
I think it would be a decent pickup for the Habs and especially for Hamilton. He might even develope well.
