I too have expressed that same desire,hopefully the Habs brass feel he can help teach some of our prospects in Hamilton and help win the Calder Cup.Another player I have seen briefly but impressed me was Marek Hrivik,IMO he could be a really good checker and PKer.He should be given an invite to the July 5-9 Camp,it can't hurt having more competition.Especially players that have been passed over in the draft as he has.

He just sign with Columbus/Springfield.

However, I think one or two of Brett Sterling, Alexandre Picard (the forward) and Denis Hamel could be great fit for Hamilton

I guess Hamilton still need a starting goalie, since Mayer could be the alternate at best. The team also need something like two forwards. A center because we don't know if Leblanc and Nattinen will be performing as we expect them to or if they'll join the team at all. A winger because apart from Palushaj, Avstin and Trotter, I don't see any guaranteed top-6 AHL winger in the system.

The d is pretty good with Diaz joining.

If we add these players Hamilton can still be strong contenders, IMO.

I think Trotter has been brought back to play that role.

Well I'd say at this point they don't have any goalies as I'm hoping Mayer isn't back with the Dogs.

They don't really need a center per say. Leblanc, Nattinen, Fortier, Masse, plus if Engqvist is back with the Dogs, plus Trotter can play center if need be same for Russell if he's back. Although I would agree that they need to find a more offensive center as we are overloaded with defensive minded centers at this point.

If Russell is back he could be in the top 6 and there's Berger who might be in the top 6. As for right now they have Trotter, Conboy, Berger, and Bishop as current LW's, Russell got his QO so I assume that means he'll be back unless he wants to try his luck in one of the Euro leagues.

The D we'll need to see who's actually there. Nash, Henry and Stejskal are under contract, I expect Diaz to start in Hamilton, and St-Denis/Carle I assume will be re-signed since they got their QO's as well. If they have a top 4 of Nash/Diaz/Carle/St-Denis with Henry they should be in good shape but will need some depth like Petruic or Bisaillon and more.

Right now though the main concern is in nets, until they get that figured out, we won't know what kind of team the Dogs will have next year.

Been playing around and these are the combos that make sense:


Trotter – Leblanc – Palushaj
Russell – Engqvist – Avtsyn
Conboy – Nattinen – Dumont
Lefebvre/Bishop - Fortier – Schultz/Masse

Henry – Diaz
Nash – Carle
St-Denis – Stejskal

Mayer

The forwards look about right. Although I think maybe Engqvist could stick with the Habs if nothing else is done to the roster. The D though isn't. Last year Nash was on the top pairing with Carle once Weber was called up, St-Denis gets a lot of ice time so he will be on the 2nd pairing and Henry was on the 3rd pairing last year with Petruic.

My first option would be to re-sign McIntyre. If it doesn't work, Deslauriers could be an option. Maybe the Habs would be tempted to give a chance to Pascal Leclaire to relaunch his career. They already did it with Marc Denis in the past.

True but I still believe that we could add a veteran forward to help the kids and add depth to our top 6.

I really think Engqvist starts the year in Montreal - seems like a player Martin would find useful.

I could see it. Big RH center, good on draws and the PK, willing to go to the front of the net. When I heard Martin give him high praise in an interview during the dogs playoff run, I started to think he could be there full time.
