Well that's just add. The Habs are low on size down low and adding a non-physical 5'11 (I hate putting an emphasis on size, by the way) just won't help much. I would have preferred someone that had a bit more size like Mark Mitera (6'3) or someone with some NHL experience like Joe Callahan (46 NHL games, also 6'3). We'll see.

Having a good preseason is not a good enough reason. Gomez had a great preseason too. When you're playing against guys that are at your level then you look better than you really are. St-Denis was going up against other teams AHL (or lower calibre) talent. He won't have that same opportunity tonight. This is why I'd prefer someone with some experience like Callahan.
