I wasn't aware of the 'recall four players after the deadline' rule. It will be fun to get a look at some of the youth at the end of this year.
I also think we'll see more activity than GMDM is leading onto at the trade deadline - especially if he isn't in the same ballpark as some of those UFAs - he might as well deal em for something. I have a bad feeling that Vybes may be a casualty.

Was in denial about this for a long time. Vybes has been my favorite Jacket since day 1. Figured we'd do whatever it takes to keep him, but he may have priced himself out of Columbus. And with the forward depth - albeit unproven - this may further muddy the notion of keeping him around, especially if a contender is willing to make a generous offer. I know the notion of trading him with the understanding that we'd resign him in the offseason has been batted around here, but that seems like a too-much-to-ask-for scenario.
Nothing earth-shaking, but I liked reading the blurb about the CBJ calling up players from the 'cuse, with a look towards allocating spots for those who might be sticking next year. Particularly, I liked the bit about a spot being held for Jill-Bear. It's a gimme, but it still feels sooo good to know that he's in the pipeline and ready now.
We'll be thanking Montreal for years to come, IMO.
