It can only be a win-win situation as you are not tying up spots on the 50 man limit like we did with Lefebvre, Berger,Mayer and in the past Masse and Fortier. I think St. Denis was also an ECHL signing before earning his contract.
Ah, yes, I agree with that. Unless Archambault takes a big step this season, I'd see rather see the Habs sign an undrafted prospect going forward. I remember rumors of Sarault, Ranford and Ciampini being invited to Montreal's camp - I wonder if they'd tryout for Hamilton, with the idea that if they do well, they could be offered NHL contracts when the lockout ends? Of course, the best of those (Sarault and Ranford) are also on the small side...
