I'm almost positive I read Emelin won't be coming to Montreal until August. I'm guessing it's the same story for Diaz. Both these guys are much older than the guys going to the development camps. No need for them to be there, they're already established professional hockey players.

Emelin entend arriver à Montréal au mois d'août afin de commencer à patiner avec ses nouveaux coéquipiers avant même le début du camp d'entraînement, mais il n'a pas été déterminé encore si Pierre Gauthier allait lui demander de prendre part au camp de développement de l'équipe qui aura lieu cet été.
He's making the move to Montreal in August, but when he signed with the Habs, it was unclear on wether or not Gauthier would ask him to take part in the development camps. Once again, I'm assuming whatever applies to Emelin, will apply to Diaz.

U are so right about Evan Mosher - Gauthier is doing a lot of things right, like signing, Emelin, re-signing Gill, now sign Gorges and Markov, get Puempel in the draft and sign or trade for a top 6 forward.

I don't know, like most of us I always liked our prospects but you know, looking at the list they really aren't that impressive at all. Another bunch of 4th liners at best, except for hopefully avstin. Really doesn't look so good. We get all excited when the habs sign some guy but they always seem to turn out to be not worth signing afterall. I'm not impressed..........

Even if they don't convince him this year its a chance to influence him to sign when if he wants to turn pro the year after this.

Very impressed with Aaron Dell (the awkward net monster) and Malka!! That guy was fantastic this year in the Q. Good stuff. Looking forward to the YouTube videos with the Rocky intros.

That's putting it mildly. I'm depressed by that list. It's almost a flea market. Gauthier seems to be reduced to sifting through undrafted players and rejects because he's almost desperate to solve the Habs' personnel problems. So much for Trevor Timmins restocking the organization with NHL talent coming up through the draft!

It doesnt help when subban, eller, pacioretty, weber, desharanis and white all graduate as prospects in one year.

Yup, that too. Last year was a huge stepping stone.

Except this part : "Gauthier seems to be reduced to sifting through undrafted players and rejects because he's almost desperate to solve the Habs' personnel problems."

Does he not know what a try-out is, and that this is not the first year they've done this. They're not inviting guys because they've failed at drafting, they're taking a look at guys without having to waste any resources.

You've even heard a bunch of posters talking about Aaron Dell as a promising young goalie, if they get a good young goalie without using a draft pick from this year on one then it's a success.

I'm not going to pretend the majority of these guys are worth anything, but they're free, so who cares.

Our talent pool is not THAT thin, it's just unheralded past Leblanc, Kristo and Tinordi. And Avtsin also, but I for one think he's not so hot.

There's a guy that I really liked us drafting and I'm hoping he pans out, and that is Steve Quailer. Big guy on the wing. I'm sort of worried because he hasn't been so good since coming out of prep school and into the NCAA. We need, badly need, another guy that size so that one day Patches has some back up in terms of physicality.

I can't wait to see Tinordi. If he plays like his dad, we'll have replaced Komisarek (The good Komisarek, not the pig that signed with Toronto and has been mailing it in since...)

Some of you think that our prospect pool is thiner than ever but don't forget that a lots of young player are with the big club

AND others will only come in the next camp

Yes for Bennet, Pateryn but don't forget Westin, Johnson, Trunev (maybe not), Wyman, Dumont, Ellis

Maybe they will add some forwars free-agent for the other one

not all-star but you never know! some will bust other will surprise us.

Johnson's rights are going to expire (if they haven't already).
Trunev is still under contract in the KHL. Questionable whether or not he ever comes over thanks to the stupid ****ing Portland Winterhawks.
Wyman is probably gone from the AHL team.

Well you know my take on that part...I also agree. And especially not keeping the guys you got for those picks....

But there's still some interesting names out there.

Many years of bad first picks + trades of 2nd picks for rentals is giving you that.

And don't forget the Habs have thrown away a lots of good players under 25: Grabovski, S.K., Latendresse, Lapierre, O'Byrne, McDonagh,D'Agostini, even Maxwell and Desjardins.

Oh yea, what about PK, Weber, Desharnais, Wolverine and White (Eller too) graduating to the ****** starting lineup in 1 single season? And Maxwell.. cmon he's been terrible for us. He had plenty of chances to crack the team, but he failed. No room for mediocrity. Gomer's performances are enough.

The cupboard's got quite the room, but it ain't bare either.

Something about him accepting to join the Chicoutimi Saguenéens if they draft him (team is owned by our coach of the time Guy Carbonneau.) but been grabbed 3rd overall by Portland because their coach knew Trunev personally for having him at a hockey school in B.C. the previous two summers.

I thought it was the Shawinigan Cataractes and not Chicoutimi, no?

EDIT: Story here - http://www.lhebdodustmaurice.com/Spo...s-Cataractes/1

Trunev: un rêve devenu presque réel
"Ce qui a été un secret bien gardé jusqu'à jeudi soir a finalement été dévoilé par Martin Mondou.
En effet, les Cats s’étaient entendus avec Maxim Trunev et son agent, et ce dernier avait averti toutes les équipes de la LCH qu’il ne se présenterait à aucune autre que celle avec laquelle ils s’étaient entendus. Pourtant, les Winter Hawks de Portland ont fait fi de cet avertissement et ont quand même repêché Trunev au troisième rang au total."

I guess I always bring back Chicoutimi because of Mikus and that it is Carbo's team.

People do know that many teams invite players for try-outs to find unheralded talent that you can sign without using draft picks? The guy who won the game for VAN tonight, Alex Burrows was undrafted and bounced through a lot of crap leagues to make the NHL. Any team that just goes through the draft and doesn't give try-outs is beyond foolish. Hamilton's leading defensive forward this season, Andreas Engqvist was a try-out that became a member of the organization and Brendon Nash, one of their better defencemen was an undrafted free agent they picked up.

Besides, this is one of two Development Camps the team is hosting, this isn't even the full field of MTL's talent pool. People are panicking over nothing as usual in the offseason.

Sounds to me like Gauthier may have his goalies for Hamilton in Aaron Dell and Chris Rawlings.Then get Mathieu Garon for Price's backup and goalies are locked down for the next few years.
