No harm in calling up a bunch of AHL guys and trading away/releasing on waivers a couple forwards (I wouldn't mind seeing Lappy and Pyatt gone, Desharnais can replace him as RDS favourite). Then see what Boyd, Desharnais and White can do. But isn't it pissing off everyone to continually see our young guys produce in the AHL, then get called up to the Habs and do nothing? This never happens to the Colorado Avalanche.
On a worst team, he'd be a permanent 3rd/4th liner for sure. He seems like a good guy and when he plays there seems to be a lot of effort and character.
Hope he finds himself a team that will give him a chance next year.
Quite frankly, I don't understand why he's being treated like this in Montreal. Stop waiving him and trade him for nothing. No team will claim him as they're scared he might not perform and they can't send him down especially after the Habs have waived him like what now?...3-4 times? Trade him for nothing damnit, let him play somewhere else. He's too good for the AHL.
I never did dislike Boyd.. I think Martin just used him improperly
Same. I actually think it would be more correct to say Martin never actually used him. Not a shift on the top6... he could have been good there with Gomez and Gio instead of having Moen on the 2nd line for 30 games.
Let's be patient witg Dustin. He clearly didn't have a spot on the roster this year, but is now having a great run in the AHL. Let the kid find his stride there and see what he turns up with at the camp next season. Yes, I'd resign him.
I'm glad for the kid , but come on it's the AHL not the NHL.
it's easy to put points in the AHL but in the nhl you have to be aware defensivly and this is Justin's the biggest weakness.He's not good enough offensly to be on the top 2 line with the habs and he's to bad defensly to be on the bottom 6.
