Technically skilled player, but his skating needs to be improved if he wants to play in the NHL. Needs major work on agility, edge work, and first steps. Would be a great player to have in the system though.

Penguins sign Zach Aston-Reese, likely the top undrafted NCAA FA.

No rush if we can keep developping him for 4 or 5 more years. I'd give him a shot for sure and train him here.

He's 21, I think he'd be looking to play in the NHL sooner rather than later - especially if the Habs have any hope of signing him. I'd expect him to be in the NHL in the next three years if he's making it at all. SHL-AHL-NHL.

Anyone think Jan Kovar could finally come over? He's pretty easily one of the top centres not in NA.

Henrik Haapala could be a long-shot option at wing. Small, but hugely skilled and finally healthy after many years of hip issues. If he could adjust to the smaller ice, he'd likely find himself within MTL's top offensive players. Great playmaker, skating has come a long long way, and plays hard - doesn't float or play solely on the perimeter. He's only 23 and can play both wings.

I'd look to take a calculated risk with Haapala or Kovar. Maybe their play translates well to the NHL and the Habs get a cheap contract and a free asset.

I would think they are still in on him. Tomorrow is Rimouski's last game of the season, and Boland's last in the Juniors. I would think he will sign something after. And I'm really hoping Bergevin lands him.

Bergevin should definitely get some talent for the Rocket...

Two of the three are Quebec-born. Not that it should be the #1 criteria, but it will help for many of the locals to have some homegrown talents to cheer for. And all 3 play in the Q, the Candiens' back yard that they seem to get a lot of flack for "ignoring."

I think that's definitely the plan... And those kids will be excited to sign knowing that the team will be in Laval, close to MTL.

Not to mention their families won't be that far from being able to come see them.

What kind of game do they each play? I don't know much about them other than they have impressive stats.

We have 48 contracts right now and I think we'll let go at least 10 players at the end of the year so Bergevin has to get some bodies...

Yea, this is the basis of one of Habs Eyes on the Prize articles from a few days ago. They write that one way Habs can lure Boland is offer him the opportunity to play in St. John's in front of friends and family to start his pro career.

Not sure about whether or not these guys have an NHL contract but the Q overagers that i like are: Francois Beauchemin, Giovanni Fiore, Kameron Kielly, Tyler Boland and Alexis D'Aoust.

If i had to sign only 1, it's easily Beauchemin.

Good energy player , showing a good progression over years. Physical , hard working , fast. Was more of a elite grinder last year for our Memorial cup run but this year he's been a leader offensively on the team.
