Then he didn't come back for Fredericton's playoffs as his Seattle went deaper in the WHL playoffs.

I'd be surprised if the Bulldogs were a good team next year. Too big of a turnover, and the team is too young. Although those young guys will get some valuable experience playing some important minutes this year. For those looking at this as a development team, it should be a good year. Those looking for results could be disappointed.
I wouldn't be so sure of that at all. I'm sure the Habs will bring in some AHL veteran guys and they have a few returnees who should put up big big minutes as well, who aren't overly old either.

Lots of healthy competition in Hamilton next year for sure either way though.
