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.
Guys....again...this is NOT a Habs contract. It's a AHL contract from the Bulldogs. Doesn't count on the 50-contract limit as it's not a Montreal Canadiens contract.
