That's true. Engqvist gets kicked out, then we have another solid faceoff guy in Nattinen.

Maybe he can be given boxing lessons in Hamilton.

XXXXXX-Plekanec-Cammalleri
Pacioretty-Gomez-Gionta
Nattinen-Engqvist(both in hamilton first but its a vision for futur probability)-Moen / Darche ?
White-Deharnais- Kostitsyn /Pouliot / Pyatt / (Eller)

I know that both Engqvist and Nattinen will probably start with the farm school but I wonder how they can fit with the Club.

Is Moen able to show them the checkline style that JM wants? (taking the probability that we lose some bottom player in the next season).

I wonder if Any Rookie foward can fit in the top 6 mold. Or if we can use some asset to grabe the Key player by trade.

bottom 6 depht is no longer to proove but we must get a real top6 roleplaying power foward. Or at least someone before giving a shot to Kristo/Avtsin/Leblanc.

Well he doesn't sound like a tough,gritty,North American forward,or a top 6 player,or an enforcer. PG continues to make the habs more suited to play in the swiss or swedish league.What a friggin joke

I saw him throw his weight around pretty well against the Americans at the WJC. He was outmuscling Bjugstad every time they battled for the puck.

If actual question:

SM-liiga: 21gp, 12pim
U20: 24gp, 18pim
http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=16043

If rhetorical: would it make you feel like he was tougher and grittier if he took more tripping and holding penalties? I`m a believer in using stats to analyze sports, but to determine a player`s toughness? You have to watch the games, not rely on PIM`s or racial stereotyping.

We all know that these prdedictions never happen. A few of our top prospects will have failed, Price will probably ask for a trade at some point. And some average prospect like Palushaj or Carle will turn into a key player.

Leblanc on 3rd line? It's probably only because we have a logjam at center by 2014.

And, if we draft Malcolm Subban, Malcolm Subban would be the backup to Price. May as well draft Marselis Subban with a 5th, 6th or 7th rounder as I don't project him being picked any higher.

Who the hell is Marselis Subban? Aren't PK's brothers Malcolm and Jordan?

Quailer's a long shot at this point and the top 9 is just as likely to have Gallagher make it as Kristo or Avtsin. And if Tinordi cracks the Habs' lineup by 2014, then I doubt it is as more than a bottom pairing/injury fill-in. He'd only be 21.

I think this is what most non-Hab hockey fans believe LL's upside is. I also think it's more reasonable to hope LL becomes a 3C than a 2C.

He certainly doesn't sound like a North American forward... as if that means anything. There are a ton of European forwards that I wouldn't mind having on my team.

He is a right-handed Defenseman.

We had two guys with apostrophes in their names and we got rid of 'em.

Now we got two guys with umlauts coming up.

What will we trade these guys for?
