The Habs will then have lost one year of the entry contract on him. I just hope they won'ty burn any of them like they did with Latendresse and almost did with Price.
I think everyone expects the con part at some point. It's pretty rare that rookies can contribute all season long. They'll probably have a drought at some point. I expect teams like Flyers and Bruins go after this line. Sure they'll have some trouble, it's part of the learning curve. The way they are used though, I don't think it'll burn them out. And besides, we don't really have better options to put on their line anyways. I think it'll be fine.
