The Official Call Up Gabriel Dumont Thread

Always been a fan of his agitating in your face style of play, work ethic and determination in the same style of Gallagher...right handed centreman I think he would be excellent for us considering his current success in the A, the mini "downfall" of Ryan White and Armstrong's mehness...

Thoughts?

Well this could be a good thanks to the guy, but I fail to see who on the lineup he is better than, or how he would help more than the guys we have and Blunden.

I think he is better off gaining huge experience on a poor hamilton team during all season and even starting next one there, after that he will likely be strong enough to be a good grinder in the NHL.

Since Moen injury is a minor one and he could have been ready for the game I don't even think so.

We can waive/send down Noke, but I feel like if he comes back soon he will get a chance first out of fairness. Dumont should be on deck though.

Co-sign that 2nd paragraph. Him being the go to guy more or less down there is really good for him. He should get a legit shot next year.

There will be injuries this year anyway. And he'll be the first to be called-up when it happens. So I fully expect to see him play a few games in the NHL this year.

We don't have a roster spot open right now but if Weber/Kaberle gets traded I'd love to see him up to add some energy on the 4th line instead of ****** Armstrong... would love him with Prust.

Noke isn't on the active 23 man roster.

Where exactly is he going to play? We have enough small players on the team, and the players that play his role are better than him. I don't see him sticking in Montreal.

13th forward career minor leaguer

we can't waive Nok he's injured. Moen is good to go and Dumont is better in the ahl playing 20+ minutes

He has little talent, and not much of a brain. He has a big heart, but even if he learns to stop taking four minute penalties for Bertuzzing guys, he still has...........little talent.

Prust is way better.

Well, when you're a fringe nhler playing on the 4th line and costing two games to your team, it's kind of happening...

There were players who did much less who got a lot more heat from the fans...

White's value to the team is a bit overated on HF Boards. I love White 2 years ago.. He defended his teamates and rarely took dumb penalties... White reminds me of a certain Gregory Stewart. Remember Stewart's game vs the Leafs on the final game of the season in 2008.. Most of us saw him as being the next Chris Nilan... We all know what happen to Stewart... Couldnt make it with the Habs and was out of the NHL not long ago... I think White is in a similar position now!
