Again, I'm fine with that but Robert Mayer would have deserved an invitation ahead of him. If it's based on the dev. camp only, nobody can say that Riopel deserved a place more than Mayer....

Sounds like Riopel had an 'in' prior to coming to Dev Camp. This is probably why he's invited ahead of Meyer. Having said that, this is a make or break year for Meyer in the Q, as he will be the #1 goaltender on a team that has Memorial Cup aspirations. If he does well this season, the Habs may have missed the boat.

I'd take Meyer over Riopel, all things being equal.

But maybe I'm biased, as Meyer plays for my city's junior team.

Rest assured, Robert Mayer has been invited too. You can now whine about something else.

They must've liked what they seen from Mayer to invite him again.

I hope we sign him.

It's good to see Mayer get an invite. I really like how he plays.
