With Dannis gone I think it's pretty safe to say Desjardins and Denis will be in nets for the Bulldogs

Goaltenders are ultimately judged by their ability to perform under big-game pressure.

"You look at their mental toughness and their will to go that long season,'' said Melanson.

"When you play in the final you're into June. A lot of athletes don't fight through that mental stage when they get fatigued in the playoffs.


was this a shot at Price??

Isn't it nice to always have these studs in the goaltending pipeline? It just seems like we have a never ending supply.

Carey Price is Montreal's starting goaltender with the backup job being a battle between Jaroslav Halak and Marc Denis. Desjardins is fourth on the Canadiens depth chart and he will spend next season with Hamilton in the AHL.


Absolutely hilarious.. no way will Halak be in the AHL this season.

Anyway, I've been pimping up Desjardins for quite sometime.. I've seen this kid play and I really think he has NHL potential. Could he be a starter? We'll see, but he definitely can be a solid NHL backup.

We're a goalie factory. Price, Halak, Danis and now Desjardins are all solid goalies we've developed and drafted/signed.

Not to mention Theodore, Huet, and Vokoun.

Well we really didn't "find" Huet, but he sure turned his career around here.

Mathieu Garon is another one.

Huet was an OK goalie when he arrived here. They, Huet and Melanson, worked on certain substantial (but also minor) aspects of his game and he became a very solid NHL Goalie.

Oh I agree that his career turned around here (like I said).. but he did have enough raw talent to be considered an NHL calibre goalie by Los Angeles.

I think Gainey will gladly take the credit for acquiring Huet, when we all know he was really nothing more than a throw-in, as the deal was to acquire Bonk.

Gainey does not take credit and admits it was a throw-in
