How many NCAA players have we drafted or signed in the past 6 years? We seem to have a love affair for the University players. Hopefully it pays off.

Wow, I'm surprised. You'd think we'd have signed a bit more.

I kinda like Bishop, he has potential and Boucher has the skills to bring it out of him. He has success with NCAA players (Patches, Palushaj)

I think Brock Trotter is more of a superhero name than Hunter Bishop.

But in these times of sex scandals in the Vatican, we might need a Bishop Hunter !

He's going to Hamilton early next week.
My understanding though is that he won't be eligible to play in the playoffs.

I was told a few weeks ago that the plan was to bring Fischer in Hamilton next season. As for immediate plans, I haven't heard anything.
Honestly, I won't bill overtime to La Presse to check what's up with David Fischer... I've got enough on my plate!

Hamilton will have to sign him to an amateur tryout contract to allow him to join the team and that makes him eligible for the end of the season + playoffs..

In today's random video...Hunter Bishop on why he thinks the NCAA is a smarter choice than the CHL.

I saw that video and was waiting for that comment! I thought of Tim Thomas but I admit that Hasek would be a good choice, too!

Habs love players that can play forward/defense (Streit, Bergeron, Dandenault) ... now we have a forward/goaltender!

Thanks. I wonder if other teams hit the NCAA as hard as the Habs do. It seems like an high amount, but maybe not as much as I think.

I received note from Hamilton this morning saying that Bishop has signed an amateur tryout contract.

I like Boucher as much as the next guy, but Patches and Palushaj are not exactly successes on his resume. One just got there, the other one got there not long before and has been hurt the whole time.

Pacioretty 15G 2G 8A 10P +10
Palushaj 6G 1G 3A 4P 0

Honestly, It's only a small amount of game but I don't see any problems with their contributions so far.

Ahh I was looking for a mention of Brock Trotter. After him and now Hunter Bishop, I'm starting to think the Habs scouting staff bases an important portion of their ratings of their obscure free-agent signings on the coolness of their names. I fully endorse this strategy!

I believe the word you're looking for is ManBearPig.

The Alaskan Assassin

http://www.bclocalnews.com/okanagan_.../88729947.html

Quote:
“Everything was finalized Wednesday around one and then they announced it Thursday. In Montreal, I couldn’t imagine playing for a more respected organization. Hockey is life there. It’s die-hard. I was at their development camp last summer, so I know five or six guys on their AHL team and obviously I know Scott Gomez from Alaska. I’ve skated with him in the summer and I remember reading an article where he called Montreal the mecca of hockey, and that’s so true.”

The Fairbanks native, nicknamed the Alaskan Assassin while in Vernon, wrote on Facebook: “Today is the greatest day of my life. One step closer to a 22-year dream. Thanks to everyone who helped me get here!”

Habs’ GM Pierre Gauthier announced he had signed the free agent, who recorded 15 goals and 27 points in his second season with the Buckeyes.

There was really never any doubt that some NHL team would lock up the 6-foot, 196-pound muscle-bound forward with roadrunner speed.

“That offer was there last year, but between the two of them (Bishop and his agent), he decided to go back for one more year (of school),” said Viper head coach Mark Ferner.
