It doesn't work like that. There is a limit to the number of contracts you can get and we aren't going to waste contracts on a player we don't even actually need. We need a fourth line center right now until Lars Eller comes up. Stop always recommending the Habs pick up random players and give them tryouts and if it doesn't work out, dump him on the Dogs.

It just makes life more difficult for the Habs and Bulldogs when we sign a player we don't even need just because some people think we need a tough fourth line winger as if it is something that can change everything about this team forever. It's so much more efficient to play Engqvist and try to develop his game at this level, and keep Ryan White on the wing where he belongs, than to bring in some newbie only to be sent down when our team is healthy again.
Take it easy pal. The Dogs could use the experience. And that's why you sign him to a short term contract or did your intelligent eyes not pick that up?
