Forwards- David Desharnais, Brock Trotter, Andreas Engqvist

Undrafted players on the Habs invited/signed by other NHL teams, Josh Gorges and Rene Bourque.

Currently in the system as undrafted FA's but haven't appeared in a NHL game for the Habs, Cédrick Desjardins, Peter Delmas, Robert Mayer, Alain Berger and Philippe Lefebvre. Since Desjardins is the current #3 on the team, any injury to either goalie and he will be another to add to the list. Maybe Delmas joins him in a couple years if things continue to progress for him.

The good thing about getting free players is while you might not very often see the results at the NHL level, they can help at the AHL level in different ways. Of course it's very rare that you end up getting a very productive NHLer ala Desharnais, but what a steal it ends up being when you do.
Desjardins should be an exception. He did beat the habs...
