Blunden might not...he's a utility player who can play in the NHL, and teams are always looking for a guy like him to plug a hole due to injuries at the start of the year. We'll see.
I agreee. Very unlikely that St-Denis will be picked. In order to do so, a team has to keep him with the big club. Just don't see it.
Blunden is more of a possibility though it would surprise me. Ever team has fringe players like him in their own organizations.
Frankly between the two, I'd rather keep Blunden. With so many d-men kicking around and a whole new wave of them a year or two away, St-Denis' utility to the Habs is pretty much restricted to where he is now--Hamilton.
