Don Lever on CKAC at 9:20

Heads up if you want to hear the Hamilton Bulldogs coach who will be on with Michel Langevin during his show at 9:20 on CKAC.

Edit: Seems that it will be a little later on. Stay tuned.

That's funny because this is how Langevin translated. In fact, Lever said that it depends on what the Habs would need - he mentioned Henry and Belle as defensive D-men with a physical side, while Carle and Weber were more offensive oriented.

Just listen to the whole thing....so here's what was said:

1- Good mixture of players, surprised by the performance, players playing above expectations.
2- Denis being very good, NHL caliber goalie
3- D'Agostini, sneaky quick type of guy. Good 2-way. Moves the puck and shoot well
4- Pacioretty: Culture shock, league was better than he thought, was dissapointed to not stick with Montreal. Not tough to coach but tough on himself. Needs to put everything in place.
5- Chipchura: Character, leadership, everything we know already.
6- O'Byrne: Like it was said before, he thinks that he's ahead of schedule. Thinks people are hard on him. Character type of guy. Gonna make his mistakes and then stressed out that he's WAY AHEAD....
7- As far as the d-men are concerned......the first guy he named was Henry, stay-at-home, solid, Belle, who's playing ahead of what they thought he would be, Weber, struggled early even on PP, but is gonna get better and Carle, needs experience. But it does depend of what the Habs need (Still.....from the tone, I believe Lever thinks that Henry is the most ready d-man of the 4....)

Thanks Whitesnake, info appreciated as usual!

Regarding O'Byrne - I think, regardless of what anyone thinks about his future, right now he can be considered a marginal NHL defenceman. If Lever considers him way ahead of schedule, does that mean the organization expected O'Byrne to be still in the AHL at 24 years old? At that age, an AHL'er is probably a career AHL'er, or is going to Europe.

I think he means they're having the same experience, or he can't read.

My fault for reading it over too quickly! Sorry about that. But yeah they probably both are going through pretty much the same thing.

I'm going to the Marlies vs Bulldogs game on the 14th, looking forward to seeing our young prospects play.

He made the team in his second pro season, I think that's indicative of what Lever meant. This is his 3rd pro season and it's only just begun, so in his second pro season, at the end of last year, we saw him show some good work, they were impressed(as was I) and they think he'll go back to that form i assume. When people spoker of emelin, or whoever at the time, no one mentioned O'byrne making the jump. So to have already done it, shows what Lever meant. I remember O'byrne coming back from his injury last year and since his injury to end of season he had very few, if any, games were his plus minus was negative. Lever is right, people are being too hard on him, when komisarek returns, O'byrne will get a lesser role, and will be told to play quality minutes instead of quantity. I have faith in him, he hasn't been all that bad, besides his mistakes, I've seen some flashes where he's used his size to his advantage, perhaps not laying a big hit but using his size to work in the corners and come out with the puck. His mobility is way underrated. I've seen him outskate forwards for the puck. If he uses his size more effectively or/and learns to play a better positional game with speedy/skilled forwards he'll end up a quality player.

That's because he started in the NCAA at 19, so you usually don't have prospects in the AHL that are waiver eligible at age 24.

It's very funny to hear Lever say bonjour with an english accent and Langevin to reply bonjour with a simulated english accent. Curious that no one else noticed...

Noticed it from the first time I heard it live. But you have to remember that Langevin is from Gatineau and he covered the Sens most of his career. I found it funny though ... His translation was also not really great (see the debate)
