Dumont 162nd, Beaulieu 172nd, Bournival 183rd and Holland 209th.
Our best scorer would be 8th in Grand Rapids.
Would be the same with Portland or Rochester who lost in first round.

It is not like the Habs: PG decided to tank when he took RC.
So the 15th place of the Habs was not really representative.
Hamilton was 28th in 2011-12.
In 2010-11 they made with PO with Desharnais, Dawes, Palushaj, Maxwell, Wyman and Pacioretty.

Nygreen and Dietz in but St-Denis out.

Let's hope to get .500 and a 12th position.
I don't see the Dogs making the PO before 2014-15.
To make the PO we would need to send down Gallagher, Dumont, Tinordi and add a few vets from NHL UFAs.
Martin St-Pierre was 14th in the scoring race, that should help the offence.
St-Denis out, Schiestel in. Don't see that much of a downgrade.
Tarnasky replace Hagel/Stortini with less useless PIM and more offense.
All D-men and forwards have 1 more year of experience.

Offence should go up dramatically. Defence should be at least slightly better. Goaltending depends on Tokarski.
