I know that the Habs had Martin at Quailer's final game of the season, but I don't know if they want to sign him or not. With his knee injury perhaps they will wait till the development camp to see how he looks and then sign him.

We can reasonably expect the Habs to no tender an offer to:

30. Masse, Dany (gone for sure IMO)
31. Mitera, Mark (gone for sure IMO)
35. Slaney, Robert (gone for sure IMO)
36. Engqvist, Andreas (gone for sure IMO based on the lack of NHL opportunity/icetime despite AHL success)
37. Bishop, Hunter (gone for sure IMO)
38. Nash, Brendon (No really sure, that injury was really bad for his career. No doubt would have gotten NHL time this year. Might be too low on depth chart now)
39. Geoffrion, Blake (gone for sure IMO based on how he's been a healthy scratch)
43. Nokelainen, Petteri (gone for sure IMO).
I can't see the Habs letting all these RFA's walk. Masse should be back, he's been one of their best players in Hamilton this year until his injury. Nash and Geoffrion should locks to be back.
