I haven't see Festerling play...but based on your words I would think that you don't think highly of Festerling's 2 games with our Habs? Do you think he's right after Nash in D-depth chart? Should we give up on Festerling or is he a project for next season? (#7dman for next season?).

What about M.Carle? are we ever gonna see him? (or he's also for next season?).
Did I miss something, when did Festerling play 2 games with the Habs? Or are you from the future?

Festerling looks to be a solid top 4 for Hamilton. I like him for the Dogs but not for the Habs. I have no clue what the future holds for Carle, can't see the Habs having 3 RD's of Subban/Weber/Carle, so it will be interesting to see what happens.

I agree with those of you who thought he played well for a first game. Looked like he kept the butterflies in check and just went out there and played his own game. Good news.

My mistake! I had the number 2 in my memory!! (that 2 was unfortunately his -2 in his one Hab game).
Festerling: 1game played for Habs...0pts...-2...0 PIM...2hits...14:53 minutes (ice-time).

So, in your opinion, we should never expect to see Festerling as our #6dman...not even next season? if so...darn it!
go Nash go!!

p.s.: saw a bit of Nash...only 8min of ice-time...he was slow on a Oilers forward on one play...maybe coach Martin benched him after that. Nash couldn't slow him down and it turned into a semi-break-away...Picard had to catch up to the Oilers player (speedy Jones? he had long hair!). The positive on Nash...saw him make one nice, long outlet pass!! But he is still raw...needs more experience.

Nash skates well for a guy his size, but for him the big adjustment will be playing against guys that are bigger and faster than AHL. On the play refered to above the speed of the forward seemed to surprise him and he couldn't recover fast enough. That's part of "getting your feet wet".

There was one play where he was caught off guard, but let's blow thing out of proprtion. We don't need to call anybody up with Gill and Mara plus maybe Wisniewski next game.

Nash is not NHL ready, I think he needs another AHL year but I like his potential.

Yeah players never have bad games or anything. Especially rookies.

Festerling has never played a game for Montreal. The stat your quoting is his one game this season FOR Anaheim.

Calling up Nash, and a poor performance from a clearly overworked D-Corps, Wiz going down, and Mara ready for Sunday,

Now we have questions on the point for sure :S

Hamrlik - Subban
Mara - Weber
Picard - Nash

Gill
Spaco
Wisniewski
all injured...

For all intensive purposes, Mathieu Carle should get the call up. Wiz is a RD, Nash played poorly last night, but I'd still keep him min. of the west swing as the #7.
Replace Nash, with Carle. This is finally the kids opportunity, and IMO I WANT to see what he can do up here!

Another just thought about last night's game... How the hell does Mara make it to Edmonton, but the Equipment doesnt... That kind of concept is totally lost on me.

One play ? Are you serious ?

Just before his bone head play on the 3rd goal... he was passed by a forward so easily it was embarassing... the worst part is that he didn't seem to be giving all his effort to come back.

Nash was extremely bad in very limited play... he's clearly not ready... he's a rookie as you pointed out and like pretty much every other rookies that tasted the NHL for the first time... he has ways to go before being effective. Time to go back to Hamilton and work on his footstep and decision making... no problem there, just part of the process... but don't be saying he looked good or great.

Curious, in your opinion is the reason Nash got the call due to injuries/waivers issues with the other D that are in Hamilton right now?

He probably had connecting flights to get there and the baggage missed the connections. Not very uncommon.

Pretty sure Carle would be a better option at this point. And it's strange that with such a young and unexperienced defence, the Habs not only traded for Paul Mara, but called up Nash instead of Festerling.

At this time of year, they're concerned to lose him to waivers if/when they send him down as teams out of the playoffs take chances, experiment. Nash doesn't have to go through waivers.

If Hamrlik was the one getting passed, then yea, it'd be horrible.
We're talking about Nash here, an AHL Dman called up urgently as we were out of Dmen. Obviously, he needs to adapt to the game and still has to learn/develop. But to say it was embarassing or scary, you're way overreacting.
Nash played well considering his situation actually. You should be happy with what you saw, not overly critical. A rookie like him will do bonehead plays, he will get passed due to off timing (although he did make the effort of poke checking the guy which prevented him from shooting, so thumbs up for that instead of taking a hooking penalty like most, even vets, do), but I'm very pleased with what I saw from Nash.
His development is going well.

Interesting comment, at the last Dogs game he played a fan sitting behind us suggested Nash looked like a horse on sedation when he was moving the puck up ice. Whatever the reason he was called, it wasn't because his play of late.

Yes he's been out for the last two games. We play the Marlies tonight will be interesting to see who's in the line-up.

That makes sense... but I just wish it didnt happen last night, I was actually happy to see him back in the line up last night... Kinda just was a bit of a let down to hear that he couldnt suit up.
