Well I doubt they are gonna sit him. 3 things lead me to believe a trade might be brewing :

1. Last week Bob Gainey said that we had depht on defense and that some assets could be used to get bigger up front.
2. We have 3 RD yet we call another one up. If they were gonna give Hainsey's pressbox seat to the call up they would have callled up Dykhuis.
3. Least but most important, in the rds full article Gainey said he'd "explain" those moves tuesday morning

I'm keeping my fingers crossed !

Good shot I'll give him that, but cannot create chances by himself. Anyway I hope they at least try him with Ribeiro so we get this over with.
I don't like Dagenais neither. But I think he can do better than Audette. Which doesn't mean much. But like I said it's all about rewarding those who produce the most and about being logical. Even though the habs management hasn't been all that logical so far. I still strongly believe that benching Hainsey after the first couple of games (where he played well) to play Bouillon was real stupid.

Same here

Look at the oilers they don't have anything close to our prospect depht and yet they have twice as many prospects playing with them. It's sad really that the management would keep achieving average(I'm being REALLY generous here) results with the vets but would keep banking their money on them. Sad ...
