Duuude I called this one! We were talking about Kristo (and Matt Fratt) in the NCAA thread and I was like they should get Dell for Hamilton. He has that calm style of play that we love + Championship/Frozen Four experience.

Hope the rumor is true!

I know nothing about Dell, but I like the idea of getting a prospect goalie in the system. If they can get a good one without using up a pick, then that is good asset management.

IMHO Danis and Desjardins were both successful applications of this theory. Mayer and Delmas, not so much. Late pick used on Halak = good. Late picks used on Simila/Lacasse/Missaien = not so much.

I'd like to see one goalie picked up as a free agent who is graduating to the pros, and one who is junior aged and will still be in junior for a couple years, actually.

This year, it seems obvious that Tampa sees Tokarski as the goalie of the future. Desjardin's stats are superior to Tokarski's (esp. the win-loss ratio). But still, it's Tokarski who got the majority of the starts. You play the goalie of the future in these situations. Not the 25 yo with 2 NHL games under his belt.
Still, Desjardin has been winning everywhere and IMO he deserves a chance
Desjardins is injured. Janus is currently backing up Tokarski.

Desjardins has only played 2 games since January 16. He would probably have played somewhere between 40 to 50 games if he hadn't been injured.

Roloson and Smith are UFAs. Desjardins may have a shot at being an NHL backup next year.

If i was Dell i wouldn't sign with MTL.

When you are a potential FA goaltender, with a lot of offers you look at the goalie in front of you.

IMO he will accept an offer from ottawa, atlanta, florida etc. before accepting a deal with mtl, vancouver, etc.

Atlanta has Pavelec, Florida has Markstrom, Ottawa has Anderson for 4 years... at this point, there is such a surplus of good goalies, I think almost every team either has one in the NHL or has a top prospect at the position. And those who don't, should be able to acquire one relatively cheaply.

Ottawa has Lehner to go along with the young group.
Atlanta has Pavelec and he's #1 for a long time (unless a trade changes this)
Florida.. Vokoun might well be leaving, but.. Jacob Markstrom is their pride and joy. So they will go with him and a veteran backup (or split games) which is likely Clemmensen.

So as far as scouting for a #1 job right away: not gonna happen. Backup, then Atlanta might be a good one. I think the Chicago Wolves have room for a decent goalie right now.


EDIT: Tabarouette, Roulin, you beat me to it

Well, for one it's really hard to say. It all depends on what you consider socially awkward as well. I would say 12.5 percent of high school kids probably are to some degree. So, 1 in 8 seems pretty normal. Also maybe his 1 guy out of 8 was not that socially awkward either.

Alright bad examples...

What I meant is... If you are a good FA with a lot of potential (if because i don't know this guy) you look at the dept at that position on the team because you want to be #1.

The monster signed with Toronto but he had x number of offer etc.

Right, and look how that worked out.

If I was a goalie, weirdly, I'd go somewhere where I have lots of guaranteed time in the AHL unless I was a total phenom.

It's better in the long run to go the Halak, Schneider, Bernier route than it is to get pushed up too fast and flame out like the Monster.

This kid isn't going to be in the NHL next year no matter where he signs, so Price is the least of his worries. If he's good, he'll either get the job or get traded to someone who needs him. Trying to predict that at this stage is insane. For all we know, in two years, Price could be the starter in Ottawa and Montreal could be desperate

Mtl has offered a 2 year deal to UND goalie Aaron Dell. Had an remarkable year with the Sioux. Another successful DMSG goalie. See you soon.

Hmmm offered, but did he accept? :O

So he says he's going back to NoDak. There's no problem in that, right? I mean if he signs a contract with us, he can still go back to NCAA and play another season, right?

No, if a college player signs, he goes pro and can't go back to the NCAA.

It sounds like he might be a guy who's still a bit too young and underdeveloped to be signing a pro contract. I don't know who in the NCAA is out there, but I'd like to see the Habs sign a UFA goalie of some stripe... be it a more senior college guy, or even the next undrafted European phenom. We kind of have that vacancy in the system IMHO.

I believe once a player in the NCAA signs a pro contract his eligibility is terminated. If he signs he wouldn't be able to play with ND he would have to play Pro.

Yeah we need to sign a goalie imo. We could always draft Dell with a late round pick to control him but I'd rather sign a senior who can jump up to Pro. Goaltending depth is a weak spot in our pipeline

As for Dell, I never saw him play but I really don't mind these signings and like someone else said it's better this way and keep our draft picks for forwards and Defencemans
I never even suggested that Desjardins would make the big club, let alone take Price's spot. But he was a really good young goaltender to have around in Hamilton. Seeing as Ramo wont be with the Dogs anytime soon it will be nice to have this Dell kid.

Dell is no longer draft eligible FYI. He's 21, maybe 22... don't know when his exact birthday is.
