Maxwell is there to let the first 3 lines take a breath once in a while. He does not do much while he's on the ice, but he also is not a liability.

Maxwell is the type of player that needs to play at NHL pace to get better. He has all the tools to play in the NHL right now he's just not effective there yet and what he needs isn't riding the bus just ice time in the NHL. He just thinks too much when in the NHL, he neds to learn to play a split second faster and he'll do fine.

He never hurt the Canadiens either since he played in the NHL

I'm wondering why they didn't send him back down, since we don't play till saturday, for cap reasons I would have thought he'd be back with the Dogs.

What does the cap space matter now that the trade deadline is over?

We still have to remain under the cap. Maxwell costs 4,404 a day and it's not like we aren't up against the cap. Plus the dogs could use him.

I didn't know we were that close to the cap. Agreed that the dogs could use him but it seems like the the habs are really interested in accelerating his development with the big club either for next year or as a depth player for the playoff push.

Which is also puzzling, would not want to see him dress for the playoffs, would rather see White.

We do have Leblanc who I think will become a good 55-60 point center if he reaches potential.

If Pleks can't go, I'd rather call up White and give Metro 2nd line duty for a night and put White on the 4th line.

Maybe he stayed for the new team picture taken today at the Bell Center?

I'm not even sure if I'm kidding.

I didn't think of that, guess they needed him to take the picture.

Don't know if that makes sense, according to people around here he's just invisible anyway.
