Blunder is strictly an AHL guy and there for a call up here and there.

We wont see much of the two next season. Blunder should be playing on the same AHL line as Gomez...hopefully.

I'm happy. I think Desjardins will be a great backup to Price in 1-3 years.

He's solid 3rd or 4th line depth. Has good size, works hard and finishes his checks.

I don't think Desjardins will ever be a full time NHLer. it's basically replacing lawson with a french version of Lawson.

Before he got injured Blunden gave us some good hockey... when he came back sometimes he looked like an ECHLer.

Great depth for Hamilton, on both signings. Love it.

He's actually decent in Hamilton, which justifies the two-way contract. In 39 games with the Habs, he was a -1, which isn't terrible on the last place team in the East. I don't see the problem.

You and I were watching different games because I saw a big guy with great energy hitting people on that 4th line. He didn't have many minutes and he played with stiffs so I didn't expect many points.

Blunden skates well, hits hard, and hits often. Granted, he has ZERO offensive creativity, but he doesn't hurt you defensively. You probably don't want him as an everyday starter, but he's perfectly fine for an injury replacement.

Desjardins back as goalie depth. That's awesome. That guy is too good for the AHL - and what I want is that our kids learn to win. Desjardins can provide that AND if Price (knock on a forestload of wood) or Budaj get hurt, he can back us up significantly better than Mayer (although I kinda miss Sanford). Now... what did happen to Ramo?!?

Blunden, well, as an astute member said, Blunden gonna Blund. Experienced AHLer to support kids, semi experienced NHL backup if things go sour. Bergevin really shopped for role players and plugs on this first day - and it could very well pay.

Kept wanting to have Desjardins back, so I'm extremely happy. Is obviously an improvement to what we had in Hamilton, though that wasn't hart but CD is obvioiusly much better. Somehow, I still feel that CD should get a shot at being a backup in the NHL. Not sure what he has done wrong in the small periods of time he was asked to do the job. He did nothing wrong.

Don't care about Blunden, fits well in Hamilton. And I guess will be okay as a callup. You always, as a fan, prefer a fresh start from a new face when you know that the guy will never be better than what you've seen, but I guess Carrière had his say and they really don't have the energy or time, as a new group, to seek the rest of the league and see what was better. They went with what they knew best and knew that Blunden did a relatively good job. Good enough for them.

But, I have to say that what Hamilton would have needed is an offensive vet à la Alex Picard. That's fine in the net now, but offensively, it's way too young for my liking.

I figured you would like the Desjardins signing. It certainly can't hurt. That is going to be an interesting team in Hamilton

Agreed, and might be able to hold his own if needed in Montreal, or at least more then the scrubs the the 'Dogs had last year.

The idea was to get a very good goalie with Hamilton. So I did keep wanting for a Desjardins or a Danis hiring. But I had also a couple of other names. But we HAD to see Mayer out of there.

Not sure about that. I'm told by sources who read a lot about the Habs that he was signed to be the RW for Scott Gomez.

Both good depth signings. Desjardins gives us a little security if budaj or price go down for an extended period (the alternatives aren't pretty). Blunden is a hardworking energy player that will probably be playing in Hamilton for most of the season, barring injury. It seems like Berg wants to build a solid Hamilton team so players like Ellis, Tinordi, Beaulieu, Gallagher et al. develop properly.

Really glad they signed a great goalie for Hamilton. Blunded looked alright at times, but he didn't annoy people like Armstrong, or fight like Prust. He just kind of showed up.
