[QUOTE=JV]This is exactly right. In fact, Balej had a really, really good camp -- including four or so exhibition games -- last year and then was hampered by injuries in Hamilton.

Last year Balej didn't get the minutes with players like Ward and Ryder getting the majority of the playing time. This year he is getting the minutes and is showing that he might be a keeper. Let him finish the year in Hamilton along with Pleks/Higgins and hopefully they can step in next year like Ward and Ryder this year.

If we are really lucky then next year with increased playing time Ferland and Milroy who aren't getting the big minutes this year can step up and do well in the AHL.

As for Perezhogin he is playing well but not dominating. Lets hope a whole year in N.A. will allow him to step up next year in training camp. He should be an example for all those who think Kastisten will walk into the habs line up next fall.
