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.
Yes, I think he clears also. I hope so, I liked what I saw from him.

THe habs will certainly end up using, much like the last shortened season, maybe 9-10 different defensemen. However, they will probably prefer Tinordi since he can jump up and down from AHL-NHL without a worry...this is where being a bit older has its downside ('we dont want to loose you so we keep you down')
