They should sign Delmas + MacIntyre for the Bulldogs, and sign Garon for the big club.
Even if they did that I would like to see us sign another goalie for the ECHL. I wouldn't mind a MacIntyre/Delmas duo, but since Delmas only appeared to two AHL games it's hard to say what he can do at that level.

Delmas was one of the top rated goalies in the ECHL this year, played well in his two starts with Hamilton, so at worst he should be a great ECHLer for us. I would take him over Mayer without givinging it a second thought, although that's not saying much.

Dell has confirmed he's returning to North Dakota next year so he won't be turning pro (he'll be a junior next year). But another good year from him and perhaps he will sign with the Habs next summer.
Rawlings I haven't heard if he wants to turn pro or not, he would be a Junior next year if he goes back to Northeastern, has had two solid years in the NCAA after coming over from the BCHL, not sure what to make of him as his team plays a solid defensive style but I got to think some NHL will give him a contract at some point.
As for Miami they have become one of the top programs in the NCAA the past few years, not sure why the Habs invited the trio or if any will turn pro this summer but it's good to get players from winning organizations imo.
What about Olivier Dame-Malka, how is he doing so far, I know him from high school and CEGEP so it would be pretty cool to see him get a contract to play in the ECHL or the AHL.
I was actually impressed with him. He has a good shot. Small but he has a nice slapshot. Fast also. I think that he could that he could sign with the Habs. I actually did not know he was a D man until i looked at the roster. He looked like a very offensive D-Man.
