Why would he not sign McIntyre? Sanford, well pretty understandable due to his last injuries....but McIntyre? As far as Dell, I have no problem with him and was on my wishlist for a number of years. Rawlings? Well here's another one I watched closely and found him more raw than Dell. Not saying he won't do it, but I don't we are there yet as far as he's concerned.

As far as Garon is concerned, for me that's a gimme. But until proven otherwise, and even if I'M going to be criticized for the next comment I'm about to make.....I don't see Gauthier getting a franco to support Carey. Then, not only blaming the GM for not doing it if he doesn't do it, but he might just be afraid of the attention that it can create on the job if Garon, for example, is having a terrific sequence while Carey isn't it...

Agree, We need a capable backup. If not Garon i would be fine with Auld or any other older backups to keep on mentoring price.

Just to clarify......NCAA prospects can attend as many camps as they like. The problem for them is, they have to pay for their own travel and accommodation expenses. Combined with conflicting summer courses and early fall semesters it is very difficult for these kids to attend both camps.

I think that technically they can only attend one camp, at their own expense as mentioned, but NHL teams get around the rule by calling the two sessions part of ONE camp.

Pretty sure they're taken care of by either other players or members of the organization. As for courses, probably, but it's not an issue to miss some lectures unless you're in Yale or Harvard.

A lot of people think the Habs should draft a goalie this year (a decent one, not a Missaien or a Simila, which means a 3-4th round pick), but I wonder what the general opinion would be if we signed a guy like Dell or Mosher (or both) instead? Might be a good way to prevent having to waste a draft pick on one. We do need depth behind Price, but it's not a pressing need, so if you can get a "freebie" like one of those guys, I think we should jump at it...

Yeah it's quite easy to find a decent backup. If they draft a goaltender, it's because they think he'll be a starter at some point...not Price's backup.

Well Auld has a good relationship with price. So it should be a 1 year deal around what he got last year. Maybe less.

Nope.......it is strictly against NCAA regulations to accept any financial support or gifts from professional sports organisations.

Interesting. I wonder if the Habs players letting the kids bunk up in a guest house is considered financial support.

Garon can't take the pressure which is why he played so well in Columbus,Ohio.He would be a great backup goalie,Dell,McIntyre and Rawlings would have quite the competition which is what good goalies do best.Costing the Habs no draft choices at the same time,perfect!

Wouldn't hurt to sign one of those guys, then look at the draft and pick up another potentially.

Why would these undrafted goaltenderd be "automatically" better than those taken in the late rounds? I have nothing against Dell and Mosher but I think it's a little bit too early to call them "decent goaltenders".

Nobody's saying they'd be "automatically" better, I'm saying they'd at least possibly be comparable to them. If Burke can call the Leafs signing Bozak and Gustavsson akin to getting "extra first rounders", I don't think it's unreasonable to say guys like Mosher or Dell could be seen as picking up extra late round picks...goalie projections being what they are.

Did they even have a practice yesterday? If it was just physicals, then it's normal not to have a report.

Allot of drills and what can only be described as skill analysis per a buddy who's there.

last year had Guy Boucher doing some of the on-ice work and it was allot of fun to see, this year is allot more low intensity.
