Archambault seems to be all over the ice judging by how often Wills is saying his name.

I wont be able to watch the rest of the game, so here is a summary about what I saw of Archambault tonite:

He has no problem following the play in AHL thanks to his great set of wheels. He showed great speed and great hands. He can do some really nifty plays.

Actually, he was the most dangerous players for the Dogs so far. Had 3-4 chance to score.

But he looks small, tiny and is easily pushed away by the opponents.

He looks high on adrenaline tonite: being all over the ice. On one back-check play, he was so speedy that he found himself deeper in his own zone than his two defs!

I would say he may need maybe 2 years of seasonings: Training, gaining weight, positioning, etc but he definitely looks a better prospect than I tought.

I dunno how his game will translate in NHL, but he is the most explosive player I saw in Hamilton this year.......till Kristo maybe....

Kyle Hagel just scored.

Now Lefebvre will play him 20 minutes a game the rest of the season.

There's no confirmation that Collberg is going to join the dogs. Same with Hudon.

Collberg hasn't report to Hamilton yet.

Has it even been confirmed that he is reporting? Or just that the Habs have provided the option?

On the Swedish papers, quotes by Collberg made it sound as if he already was going to North America. Said he was excited to train hard and show them what he can do, what he can improve on [Something around those lines]

Nygren's team isn't eliminated in the SEL playoffs though (they are down 2-1 in their series)...but still good to hear.

Corey Pronman (ESPN writer) tweeted that it was confirmed he's coming.

Too bad these guys didn't all start the year in Hamilton. Maybe that way, Gallagher wouldn't still be their 2nd leading goal scorer

Kristo and Leblanc reunited after 4 years? Regardless of whether they play together, the team should improve offensively with Kristo and perhaps Collberg. Can't wait to see the new lineup.

Good to hear, better to get the Collberg contract out of the way now.

Kristo and Leblanc both play RW, but it should be close to this. Dumont should be at C. Plus add Hudon.

Lefebvre will still overplay the 2 goons and Noke though.

I would think that Kristo gets top RW spot off the bat.

With tonight's injuries, is it time to give Leblanc a call?

I'd much rather give Bournival or Dumont a shot... both take their NHL progression seriously unlike Louis.

It's unknown at this time, there isn't a current PTA in place with the NHL and IIHF so we'll have to see what the plan is for next season. I would assume that after they sign him, they could bring him over by buying out his contract in the SEL but who knows if they would want to do that or not since the WJC's are in Sweden and he seems to be doing well enough in the SEL. He won't count against the 50 contract limit if he's signed and plays in the SEL next year so might be better to just leave him there for one more year and then bring him to Hamilton the following season.

Do you think it is not better for him to keep learning in the AHL than in the SEL? Like the sens did with Zibanejad?

I consider every player to be different so I would go case by case. Personally I would leave him in the SEL vs playing in the AHL at 19 especially if the current coaching staff remains in place for next season in Hamilton which I assume will be the case.
