Is there a chance Trunev and Kristo come to play in Hamilton next season ?

2 #56 Montréal Canadiens Danny Kristo (RW)
3 #86 Montréal Canadiens Steve Quailer (F)
4 #116 Montréal Canadiens Jason Missiaen (G) (Wasn't signed)
5 #138 Montréal Canadiens Maxim Trunev (RW)
7 #206 Montréal Canadiens Patrick Johnson (F)

You can put not signed to Patrick Johnson as well, we no longer hold his rights. Too bad we didn't draft Anders Lee or Drew Leblanc instead of Johnson as both went undrafted that year (Lee and Leblanc are among the top scorers in the NCAA this year, wanted the Habs to take either one oh well)

Kristo should be in Hamilton next year, I thought he would be there this year so I'd be shocked if he went back to North Dakota next year.

Trunev I don't think he will ever come over, I did expect Emelin to come over although I was starting to have my doubts. Trunev's contract in Russia ends this season (unless he re-signs between now and the end of the season) and he is on pace for a career high so perhaps something could be worked out this summer, guess we'll see.

Quailer I could see him going back to Northeastern for his Senior year next season, unless he has a really big year.
