The most ****ing useless player in the NHL. He can't score, he can't pass, he can't hit, he can't play defense, he can't fight.

I guess we really didnt have a choice since cammy went down. I would have liked to see Trotter though, just because it looks like he is putting up alot of points.

When D'Agostini was sent down, Jacques Martin said on RDS that he was down for 3 games...

Trotter or Desharnais would be a much better choice, especially Trotter, when will the dude finally get his shot?

D'Agostini could've been down there for 2 weeks max and then his stint ends. But seriously, just 1 assist in 3 games is pitiful.

Correct, but then we would have had to bring him back up and send someone else down in his place. D'agostini is still being paid his NHL wage while on the conditioning stint. So bringing him up doesn't effect our cap space. If we brought up another player, we'd have to pay their NHL salary, plus D'agostini's.

I think people are under the impression that there is always a trade out there not being made that would suddenly transformed our mediocre team into a cup contending one. Every day this deal isnt being made, the GM is failing.

The best trades are almost always the ones not being made but I guess people just need something positive to talk about while the team is losing

They only had to call him up after 2 weeks, he's only been down 4-5 days. Maybe they need him because Cammy is out, or a deal(s) is coming.

He can score, he's just quite one dimensional and lost his confidence lately.

D'Agostini to fill Cammalleri's shoes? You can see what's wrong with this rebuilt team. The 5 or 7 years plan should be recognized as a failure by everyone now.

Sure, and I'll desregard the attitude for the obvious fact that d'ago wouldn't be anyone's first choice for an offensive call-up

Are you guys trying to confuse me, or am I daft? Is some part of the media suggesting there is a move coming tonight? Because I am not in Montreal so I have heard nothing. Just that D'Agostini was called up.

Since Dec 12th, D’Agostini, in 19 NHL games played, had 0G and 0A, limited/poor (too lazy to verify!) number of hits and his +/- was at -9. All that while receiving a decent amount of top2 lines duties.

7 days ago, the Habs sent him down for a two weeks conditioning stint. He collected 1A in 3 games played. The good news is that he did shoot the puck 10 times.

Stats aside, D’Agostini is easily knocked off the puck, he does not attack the net nor does he fight hard for the puck, he was not using his shot enough, he was playing with near zero confidence and he still is an average sized player.

As you can see, I am definitely not a fan though I still remember the à la Ryder (in Ryder's good days) D’Agostini: the sniper that we saw during his first 10-15 games with us in December 2008.

So... they want to give another chance to 23 years old D’Agostini?

Fine; he did show us NHL speed, shooting skills and a knack at keeping the passing lanes open (positioning) in the slot – especially the mid/higher end - I hope he makes the most of his opportunity because right now, no one can convince me that D’Agostini > Trotter or Desharnais or Pacioretty.


PS Pacioretty needs time in the AHL but at least he was working hard and did throw his body around: he still rank 4th in Habs land in terms of hits. Though when 68 hits in 52 games played is enough to put you on 4th, it means you are playing for a totally "ungritty" team... but that's another topic!

Guy Boucher only needs 6 days to turn a player into a star.

D'ago will have us all saying "CAMMY WHO?"

What's the deal with people saying "ITS BIGGER THAN THAT"? A few people have asked but no one has answered properly. Has it been reported that there is more to this call up !?!?

It's a joke about that whole Phaneuf Toronto thing. Look at the early posts about that trade
