So he has 2 games in Hamilton before the Minnesota game? I hope he destroys the AHL so they call him up to play his former team.

I think there's a two week maximum on a conditioning stint before he has to be brought back. I think anything longer would have required him to pass through waivers. I don't think can be there more than 2 weeks.

Reading some of the comments about Boucher's magical mind altering abilities in terms of reshaping the minds of young pro athletes, I am now convinced he is a mutant super hero leader bent upon raising an army of his "reclamation" projects.

We never know, we're good at not following the rules

Perhaps we didn't respect the rule of not moving the puck too fast before a referee's eye tonight?

I genuinely think Boucher is the next Scotty Bowman.

People ask why Habs fans overhype prospects? The answer is simple : its fun and makes us feel better.

Why not overhype our coaching prospect then? Boucher for Jack Adams!

Boucher will turn Pouliot into Lecavalier 2.0, and Subban into some kind of mutant with the combined abilities of Robinson, Lapointe and Savard. The big three in one package, and we all know PK must have a big one!

It might technically be 15 days, not 2 weeks... but I'm not sure. Hope Gainey is though.

Would the league notice if he calls them informing Pouliot is called back, but secretly leaves him in Hamilton to play another week?

They barely noticed White played a period for us, I'm sure no one watches the AHL so he could probably play a game or two disguised as Greg Stewart or someone equally useless.

First of, great user name. #20 is a monster, its a matter of time before good olde Pierre realizes it.

Secundo I doubt Pouliot agrees to stay in Hamilton longer than needed, he'd probably ask Bob Gainey "Do you know who I am?" in an angry and disrespectful way. The only fortunate thing this would bring is that Habs fans on the trade board would start including him into every ******* proposals to Edmonton (of all places) instead of the Kostitsyns.

I thought the guy could be sent down without going through waivers. There no place for him on the big team...

No, he signed his first pro contract too long ago (versus # of games played as a pro (ahl and nhl)).

He can only be sent down on a conditioning stint, or else he has to go through waivers.

As to whether there is place or not? WTH????? I think management has a better idea about that, regarding what he can contribute compared to other players who are already there. If they want him, they can easily make place for him.... I'm out of words to describe the futility of your comment.

No, the two week maximum isn't really two weeks. You can play the full year on a conditioning stint. The way it works is that a team can send a player down for up to two weeks on a conditioning stini, after the two weeks is up, the player must agree to stay on the conditioning stint, if he doesn't agree then he has to be recalled. If he does agree, he can stay down as long as he wants. The player gets their NHL salary while in the AHL.

He was playing winger with Wild.

He cleared waivers a few days after he was sent down for his conditioning stint. He's playing in Hamilton full time now.

Read an article the other day counting down the 5 best and worst draft picks of the past decade.

Worst:
#4 Benoit Pouliot

Best
#2 Marc Streit

Wouldn't argue against that. In terms of picks, he has provided the team that picked him with extremely little since the draft relative to the time he has been in the organization and the expectations of someone of his skill and draft position. Furthermore, he didn't really fetch that much when traded. Luckily that's one pick that won't fall back on Timmins.

As a pickup at age 23 and a few wrinkles hopefully ironed out, though, I reckon he never hits any worst trades of the past decade count downs (although hoping it does... from Minny's perspective!). There's always a chance though.
