But what if I want his babies!!!!

I have such a man crush on him. When he gets on the ice I get so excited if you know what I mean! lol.

All kidding aside, I can't wait until he develops properly. Imagine him playing at his current level consistently while being 10-15 pounds heavier!? Him and Plekanec being our 1-2 punch would be potent!

BTW someone stated that Dawes would have to go through re-entry waivers if he was called up by the Habs. Well he isn't. According to Renaud Lavoie it's because he's on a two way contract, which makes no sense.

Sucks that the injuries might be semi serious but pumped to see Pulshaj. I can picture him on the big club next year.

51? FRANKIE B!

Man I really hope Palushaj can adjust quickly, Desharnais/Pacioretty style. But it's highly unlikely.

Haha never. I'm not really the pesimistic poster, but I don't think it's fair to expect Palushaj to make the jump and start producing at a 20 goal and 50 points pace in the nhl.

If Palushaj Pans out this 2007 draft will be a turning point for our team going forward. Subban,Eller,Pacioretty,Weber are already all capable player who as alot of upside. If Palushaj as the same impact, This would be very good for the team since they will reach their peak all in the same time.

Imagine if in 3-4 years our top line is Pacioretty-Eller-Palushaj and our top 2 D are Subban and Weber. Maybe it's a reach for Weber and Palushaj but for the 3 others (granted Pacioretty fully recovers) I think it can happen.

I think we're all going to like Palushaj a LOT more than Dawes. Palushaj is a firecracker, makes himself noticed on the ice. Dawes is more of an opportunist, which may fit well with Gomez and Gionta.

Please welcome the Montréal.... Bulldogs!!!

Well, I'm not really exstatic about them being called up as this means Halpern and Pleky will miss a game or two I guess. Hopefully Price can stand on his head and we can snatch a win soon somewhere. Would ease the pressure.

e) Pumped to see Palushaj though!!

Thanks RBC.

I've seen very little Bulldogs games this year. I like what I've seen from Palushaj. What do you think he can offer and what do you think his nhl potential could be everything falls into place perfectly(big if I know). Or what do you think is a reasonable potential for him?

I would try:

Kostitsyn-Eller-White
Cammalleri-Desharnais-Moen
Dawes-Pyatt-Palushaj
I think the lines will be:

Moen-Gomez-Gionta
Kostitsyn-Eller-White
Pouliot-Desharnais-Cammaleri
Dawes-Pyatt-Palushaj

They might not be too bad. Pleks may miss a few games. They still need to fill holes.

Ya I was thinking the same. Here's a question though. Does the call up limit carry over to the playoffs?

Re-entry waivers are based solely on player salary. Most 2-way contracts are inherently re-entry exempt because their AHL salary is usually under the limit (IIRC, it's $105,000 or $115,000) for minor-league salary. As such, all 1-way contracts must clear re-entry once they are waiver-eligible.

There is also a stipulation regarding NHL games played in recent seasons, so many career minor-leaguers (such as Curtis Sanford) don't have to clear even though they make significantly more money than the standard re-entry limit.

However, you are correct in noting that the reason for Dawes' call-up not requiring waivers is not simply because he is on a 2-way, rather it is his salary that matters.

I hope that clarifies the situation for anyone who needs help.

Glad to see you have a sense of humour. After I posted I wanted to delete it but couldn't find the delete button.

I agree with you. He'll be something else but I still don't have a crush on him. I reserve those for the fairer sex.

Sometime bad things happen but in the end it might turn in something positive.. As far as I know we are not in danger to miss the playoffs, so even if we lose a couple it doesnt really matter, some players will have the opportunity to play more while some kids will have the opportunity to show they belong to the NHL, it will be the perfect opportunity to see what guys like Pouliot Desharnais Weber have to offer in different situations, so what really matters IMO is to have Plekanec Halpern and Sopel healthy and rested for the playoffs, hopefully both Palushaj and Dawes do well and push some other guys to bring their game at another level making it hard for the management to send them back in the minors.. Quality depth should never be underrated and I think this is what we have..

The Desharnais line would be awful defensivly, that's why I switched Pouliot and Moen. Although Martin has no confidence in Pouliot, and Pouliot himself tend to chock when placed on the top line.

I agree. Without key injuries this year we may never had seen Weber, Pacioretty, Desharnais. Especially Desharnais, because we may never had seen him EVER on this club if it was due to extraordinary circumstances. I liked what i saw from Palushaj in training camp, and i look forward to seeing how he does. With the way Washington is coming together, I don't think it makes a big difference if we play Philly, Boston or Washington. 3rd, 4th or 5th would be best, but if we lose out there, i don't think it makes much difference if we finish 6th, 7th or 8th--and with all these injuries that's where we look like we're heading.

I think JM will put Palushaj on the Eller line, he's played with him before in Peoria and he is a natural RW.

Cammalleri - Gomez - Gionta
AKos - Eller - Palushaj
Pouliot - DD - White
Moen - Pyatt - Dawes

Welcome, Acceuillons nos Bulldogs...et quelques Canadiens!


Basically all the injuries has offered the Brass to test our team Depth...and sitting well into 6th shows that it isn't all that bad, still need to make some moves to take the next step but this team has shown alot of heart and talent all the way down to Hamilton. Thanks BG

I was thinking that too. I think it does, doesn't it. I am not sure how it works. Really they should have a special clause in there for teams who have an inordinate amount of injuries.

Is there a scratched player limit? I'd seriously consider keeping guys up. Dogs need players, I know. But so do the Habs.

I think the organization plays it safe and leaves Palushaj and Dawes with the team for the rest of the season, so they don't have to waste another call up space after.
