Tampa Bay has 4 guarenteed spots on the Hamilton roster and the agreement was that if the Bolts wanted those spots, they needed to send their 4 best prospects to Hamilton. They sent Eero Somervuori, Alex Svitov, Andreas Homlqvist and Jimmie Olvestad.

The main goal of a hockey club is winning, Jarvis will simply play the best player available and since the Bolts are sending their best prospects, they will all play regularly on the lineup while the less talented/developed habs prospect will be in the stands. However, look forward to see Svitov/Olvestad/Homlqvist/Somervuori being called during the season.
