In any case my point was really that we always talk about the 3 guys (Beaulieau, Tinordi & Ellis) because they were CHL guys, but I'm just excited to add Pateryn to the mix.
I didn't mean to, sorry if it was confusing. I was citing maturity for Pateryn because he already has his frame filled out, compared to the other rookie D's.

Pateryn will have do to a lot to surpass Tinordi in the depth chart. For the record, he's looking better than I thought he would in the AHL.

If 2010 1st round draft pick is the 6th dman at the start of the 2013-2014 season then he is not being fast-tracked.

That sounds just right to me.

*******

Having Tinordi, Beaulieu, Ellis, Pateryn down there is very exciting.

We have Markov, Gorges, Subban, Diaz, Emelin as seeming long-term "locks" on D, well ... probably not.

You can't look at it that way. It really depends on the player. Tinordi is a big guy. I watched him play a lot at the junior level and he was able to really dominate. I have not seen that at all in the AHL. I think he could move up and play NHL hockey soon and be good. I am just wondering if it wouldn't be better to wait until he starts dominating in the AHL like he did in junior hockey and at the WJC.

Ultimately we need the beef...so I think the habs may bring him in soon.

I'm all for moving PATERYN up before Tinordi. He is two years older and seems to have matured nicely. Tinordi still needs time, so why rush him?

Today (3 PM start) is the Bulldogs season. They are 11 points back of 8th place Rochester. Rochester has 2 games in hand.

However, the Bulldogs face them 4 more times after this game.

Regulation win is a must if there is any hope of getting into the race.

How posters that watch the Bulldogs games regulary would say about Tinordi actual physical play, how he developed that aspect during the season ? I mean I watched some games during the lockout and I thought that yes he was a good skater, yes he had a mature defensive game, but I really thought that he needed to improve his physical, mean side of him to really be the player he can be in the NHL.

What I saw before the season started, he was pretty physical. He had a little trouble with skating against bigger and faster players.Last I saw, he was the most NHL ready out of all of them.

I haven't visited this thread for a while and am curious as to how Leblanc has been doing. His points seem to be increasing lately. Has he been getting more ice-time? PP? Is he officially over his injury?

I didn't think he was all that good but perhaps it was just nerves for the 1st game. I didn't see the entire game though.

The NCAA guys tend to get underrated, I'd like to see Pateryn improve on moving his feet quicker but he's impressing at both ends of the ice right now and to think that he's barely played all year while others have been in game shape since oct/nov.

If St-Denis wasn't injured, i'm not sure who they would call up first, my guess is it would be Tinordi unless they wanted someone for the right side, so it would have to be either Pateryn or St-Denis since he can play RD with ease.

Beaulieu Pateryn
Tinordi St-Denis
DeSantis Ellis

Perhaps they would consider rotating Ellis and Stejskal since he's a RFA this summer and they might want to continue getting a look at him as he is playing better and has been more physical of late which hopefully means he's getting more confident as the physical should be a big part of his game at the pro level but that hasn't really been the case from what i've seen.

Beaulieu has been up and down. At times you can see him start to take over a game as he can be all over the ice and uses his tools well (skating/speed/strength/passing) but other times he makes glarring mistakes in his own end that can leave you shaking your head. That said he's got a good mix of offensive skills to go with solid physical abilities, really hope the Habs take their time with him as I would hate to see him get rushed.

Tinordi just came back from an upper body injury, he's been a surprise for me in that he's made the transition quicker/more easier then I expected he would. His skating/mobility has also surprised me as he looks really good on his skates. I do expect to see him get in some games with the Habs next year, although I hope they don't rush him either as I would like to see him spend more time in Hamilton if possible. But he plays such a smart safe steady game and excells on the PK, so I wouldn't be shocked if he saw more time.

Ellis has been solid for the most part, he's been good at both ends of the ice, although I'd like to see him get quicker.

should be an interesting game, guessing Mayer will be in net, but despite winning the last 2 games with the 2 different goalies, imo neither looked very sharp in their games.

Personally I think some Hab fans are going to be disappointed with Tinordi's physical play. While he can dish out some big hits, and does so, I wouldn't say he's overly physical but perhaps that will change as he gets more experience as a pro under his belt. Right now he seems to be more focused on playing safe, smart defensive hockey and it's working.

From what i saw of Tinordi, is that he's gonna be physical, but not overly physical. BUT, when the game gets nasty or when some players from the other team are trying to get him mad, that's where he becomes nasty and mean back there. Just like his father. He has an "Don't mess with me or my teammates" attiude, because he becomes mean outhere.

While i kind id disagree with you on that front, I'd take a mobile young hal gill any day of the week haha. Overly physical or not, tinordi is going to be a staple for this club imo

The lines have been shuffled around, Leblanc did see some time on the top line but last game he was back on the 2nd line as the top line was Tenute Dumont Blunden but he is getting time on the PP and has looked better so I'd wager he's over his injury as of late he seems to be moving around much better. Although the coaching staff still isn't happy with his play, saying he still has a good bit of work to do to get back on track.

I agree, I think he will be physical from time to time and perhaps moreso once he gets a couple seasons under his belt as experience should increase his confidence. But I do think some around here think he's going to be this big ball of hate and I don't think that's going to be the case. He does a good job of sticking up for his mates.

Agreed, I don't know how good Tinordi will be in the NHL but with the steady defensive play, size, mobility, physical abilities and a excellent PKer he shouldn't have a problem being a regular in the NHL in the future and could end up having a very solid impact for the Habs.

Not being the most physical player doesn't mean he won't be an useful guy, but to maximize his potential and value to the team, he has to become a mean and effective front of the net clearer IMO an aspect we lack since the good days of Mike Komisarek. I will never expect him to run guys with big hits, in fact it's something pretty rare with 6'6 + defensemans (look at Chara, Pronger, Gill, Myers etc. they have some highlight hits, but not as often has you think they would unlike guys like Kasparaitis, Konstantinov, Stevens etc.). He has to be intimidating and make forwards pay the price in the defensive zone, in the front of the net, during puck battle, he can and should overpower others players.

Thanks to the others replies that seems also to show he has maybe some work to do on that area of his game.

From a dozen games that I've watched during the NHL lock-out, Tinordi was slightly more physical then Hal Gill. I'm not sure if Tinordi has changed it now.

Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 49 shots ? Not bad then.

I think Tokarski is doing pretty well for us. Maybe it's just me, but I think we won the deal from the start.

Tokarski was absolutely brilliant today, very impressed. The Bulldogs made a ton of mistakes in their own zone, but Tokarski kept bailing them out.

Lefebvre must really not like Avtsin. Kid gets an assist in a win and he still gets benched.

Thanks. I can't say I'm happy about him being hurt but it's good to hear he wasn't benched. Is it serious?
