And why the sarcasm for the ECHL anyway?

Ryder went there and see where he's at. A prospect like Ryan O'Marra who I was never a fan of but still an interesting prospect finished the year in the ECHL after a not that succesful outing in the AHL and there has to be so many other examples.
I assumed you meant that White could make an NHL roster - which I thought far fetched - so I was simply taunting you with WHL and ECHL. I'm not even sure if White is still accepted in the WHL - has he done all his junior time?

By all means, I have nothing against having prospects in the ECHL. Usually many NHL organization do not utilize theses affiliates effectively. But we have a GM - with rich deep pockets of potential - who even makes transactions to make sure that his ECHL affiliate is competitive. Talk about being meticulous.

So basically, no I did not know you pov on White...

No prob. I thought that my "love" for Whitey was known all over in here.... Reason why it caused somewhat of a commotion when I have my "best forward" award of the day at the last camp to Ryan White. I just think that while he does have the qualities that could make him an interesting prospect as he progresses, I just don't think he's there yet. At worst, I also don't think he has that high of a ceiling. At best, I think it will take more years than expected to even make it on a NHL roster, 3rd line being the most I think he can achieve.

It's his turn now to make me look like a fool. And I really wish he does, 'cause it will mean that we will be much better.

As far as his place with the Dogs, I just think that we have guys that deserves their chance or was acquired so we could see what they're made of. Guys like Wyman, Beauregard, Desharnais, Trotter and maybe even Aubin. It would not be a problem to see all of them start the season with Hamilton and then make a move by moving up a little later and either trading one of those guys or moving them back to Cincy.

Having said that, chances are the training camp will tell the story. Not really sure the Habs are going in that camp with the fact that players deserves chances. Those players will have to deserve it by their performance. And of course if White shines, he stays, that's a gimme.

Always nice to have depth and a winning team in the minors gives the young guys a good learning environment.

Yup. It's good to have a few players on the farm that have at least some NHL experience under their belt with extensive AHL experience. It makes the farm team more competitive, and they can also teach a thing or two to the our prospects. Not only that, but they can be used as depth players in the event that they're absolutley needed.

Very good pickup, he is an elite AHLer and could be decent emergency call up if many injuries happens (knock on wood).

This can not be a bad move...

Lehoux played in the AHL (Manchester) for a number of years. Seemed to have the skill, but was know as lazy Lehoux. From what I read about his time in San Antonio, he was known as lazy Lehoux there also. Hopefully he'll turn things around in the Montreal organization.

Not a bad signing for the Bulldogs. Canadiens management has often been criticized, by Hamilton Spectator columnists, about not acquiring enough quality AHL talent to help their farm club. I tend to agree with them.

By no means do I want a Toronto Marlies situation whereby four of the players are over the age of 30. You need a mix. If you're going to have a veteran presence in the AHL. Make sure the players are productive and have seen some duty in the NHL. Glumac and Lehoux fit that description. Danis and Henry to a lesser degree.

These are the typer of players that must set and example and hopefully enhance the development of D'Agostini, Pacioretty, Maxwell, White, Valentenko, Carle, Wyman and Trotter.

Bad news for the locker room... I know this guy personnally, I've played with him Atome, PeeWee, Bantam and this guy was a cancer, unable to socialize and was a ******** whiner. When I actually played against him in the Bantam AAA competitions (don't really remember the exact year), I was more than happy to give him a couple hits. I don't like this signing. This guy's head is bigger than a watermelon. You know what 'frais chiť' means ?

EDIT : Well, actually, if he changed his attitude over the years, then it's a good signing, because he is a good hockey player.

Fortunately people can change and while he had to be the greatest player on every team he played for, if he's intelligent, he does know that it's not the case anymore so if he's still, to this day, "frais chiť", he does have a big problem. But now he has the chance to make something out of this contract and maybe, I don't expect it, if he surpasses the expectations have a shot at the NHL once again and play for the Habs. If he doesn't use that to his advantage and still is a headcase, well that's what a 1-year contract is all about. It's not like we're stuck with him for the next 6 years....

It is a good signing and does show management is making an effort to acquire quality AHL talent. But on the other hand, management has drafted quite well and developed a lot of talent on their own through the draft.

Like I've stated in my previous post, I really hope he changed from what he was younger because then he won't be a good example for our young prospects, him being a selfish whiner that doesn't care about his teamates. I might be wrong for what he became from 17 to 25 years old, but I doubt it.

All the best players in Junior or other lower levels are put in as centres, get the best players and put them on wing if too many centres....where you played in lower levels as a forward has no bearing on the future. (Doesn't apply to me...I was a lumbering defenceman that was only good at getting in the way - size used to be an advantage!! I don't think I ever crossed the red line!!)

I'm an Anglo, but I also like giving local Q guys a chance over others when possible, good signing, and good luck.

Has this been confirmed as a 2-way contract yet?

He could be the 14th forward replacement for Dandenault..
