Top 6 potential? Pro ready? What should I expect before I get too excited?

Even if he is "only" 197lbs, I cant see why we wouldnt want to sign him. If he needs to fill out, how hard would it be for him to put on 10-15 lbs over the summer with professional trainers? He is a big skilled forward, and he is from Quebec so he would make that croud happy. He may be NHL ready as of next season.

video of Laganiere http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BGomSlDiTc

Says he models his game after the Staal Bros.

Everything I've been told and heard about this guy so far -

1. Physical presence
2. Strong Powerforward game
3. Soft hands one of his best assets.
4. Great speed and agility for his size
5. Hockey sense is underrated, and has a hell of a nose for the net. LOVES to shoot.
6. Many believe he's a top 6 talent.
7. Some Comparisons to Blake Wheeler.

Thats all I've got for now, I'll post if I find out more.

Lageniere was contacted for the very first time by Bergevin or the Habs only very recently.

Three other teams have shown more interest in the last couple of years : Vancouver seems the frontrunner, with Edmonton and Pittsburg.


Laganiere has said that he will make up his mind in the next 48 hours.

Take out of this article what you will:

Même s’il aurait aimé avoir des nouvelles du Tricolore plus tôt, il vaut mieux tard que jamais. Revêtir l’uniforme bleu-blanc-rouge est un rêve d’enfance pour celui qui dit suivre le rendement du Canadien depuis les États-Unis.

«C’est sûr que j’aimerais ça! Je les regarde depuis que je suis tout jeune, a lancé Laganière, depuis le Connecticut. Je suis heureux qu’ils démontrent un peu d’intérêt et une partie de moi veut voir jusqu’où le progrès des discussions ira.

«Ce serait un bon moment pour moi que de me joindre au Canadien puisque l’équipe gagne. Ce serait plaisant de faire partie de ces succès.»

From my very limited viewing of him on YouTube, first impression is he reminds me of Johan Franzen.

I didn't know he was a habs fan. I thought somebody said he was a fan of some other team.

Or is this just the usual fluff?

Usual fluff.. then this will be quoted and someone will say "Did Bergevin even set his alarm clock? Wake up "

He could say the same about the Pens, the Canucks or Edmonton, three teams with serious potential too. The Habs have dropped the ball in this case by not getting in touch with him before this week.

If MB don't sing Bordeleau this summer it's a massive fail.

One of the best enforcer in the league , from QC , UFA , not going to cost alot.

Even if he doesn't play all game and only ~6 min a game , it's good to have this type of guy in the system

I don't think it matters, he will sign with the team that he has the most interest for. Regardless of when they called him.

Agreed, he knows they're interested now, shouldn't make a big difference. Just a coincidence that he said he'd decide in two days right after the Habs contacted him? I have no idea if that's true, just rumour mongering

Pittsburg don't have much dept on wings next year with a bunch of ufa that might sign elsewhere.

Which kids would not like to play with Crosby or Malkin ?

The three teams that I quoted actually had him at some of their rookie camps. Not the Habs.

We should be aggressive on Laganiere, but we won't be.

The usual suspects will be involved. Not us.

Habs interested in Yales Antoine Laganière.

http://tvasports.ca/hockey/canadiens...gevin-14042013

Seems like a big solid player. Would be exciting to have on the team. Anyone got a scouting report?

Why wouldnt we be interested? Our FW prospect pool is poor.
