MacAulay's contract puts the Habs at 46 contracts, so four left and when Gauthier was GM he usually had one contract left over. Better to have good depth than be left with your pants down, when injuries hit and trying to find a quality replacement. That's how teams lose draft picks, there are some defencemen worth looking at signing for the Bulldogs depth.

When the Habs are ready to make a real run at the playoffs is when the Bulldogs need to have the borderline NHLers in quantity. With the signings of St. Pierre, Tarnasky and the trade for Thomas the Habs have some depth with experience.

Thomas of course has NHL type talent and is a top six talent but can play any place the coach wants (Character Players never whine) Definition of character look up Christian Thomas. Soon the definition will be look up Hamilton Bulldogs and Montreal Canadiens.
