Carbo wants Desjardins

I'm from Abitibi-Témiscamingue and they just told on the radio that Carbo ask Gainey to offer a one year contract to Desjardins.

I'd be all for it.

He would spice up our 2nd unit powerplay, upgrade over Streit at the very least.

If it's for league minimum, great, but I doubt Desjardins comes out of retirement.

Are we talking about Cedrick Desjardin (or whatever his name is) who is playing in goal during training camp, 'cos that might make more sense?

nope, talking about Eric Desjardins. ex Habs and Fylers, now retired. and I doubt it very much he comes out of retirement.

Is it new news or old news, I wonder? At any rate, if Bouillon and Cote are both down, then considering that I was originally ok with the idea of signing Jason Woolley to a minimum deal, then I'd have no problem with something similar for Desjardins. But I was under the impression that he wasn't really healthy enough to consider resuming a playing career either, and his retirement words sure seemed to indicate that he was happy retiring as a heart-and-soul Philadelphia Flyer with little interest in ever playing anywhere else again.

I would welcome desjardins! It would be great for depth, but then who is the odd man out when Boullion is back?

They said on radio that it would be a surprise if Éric Desjardins camo off is retirement. But I think it's a good idea to at least, try to get him for 1 year.

I would be shocked to see Desjardins come out for retirement.
I will never forget that hat trick in the cup finals he scored wow what a game!

If I'm not mistaken, didn't Gainey offer Desjardins a 1-year deal in the off-season before he retired and Desjardins refused?

I think this thread should be re-titled to read 'Carbo wanted Desjardins'.

Not to belabour this or anything, but if Desjardins signed his retirement papers, he would have to sit out a year before coming back anyway...just like the situation with Patrick Roy when he left Colorado and then people were talking about him coming back after they signed Kariya and Selanne that summer.

Nice thought...I wouldn't mind seeing Desjardins helping out the organization in some capacity. I think there's been a very slow but gradual move towards reconnecting with alumni and really promoting the history of the franchise, which is very important.

If he didn't sign his papers, then perhaps this could be plausible. There have been countless occasions in all the sports where a player has claimed to have retired, only to take up an offer to play again in a perfect situation (Junior Seau is the latest that comes to mind).

If Desjardins is healthy to play, and Carbo can convince him to come out of retirement, I'd be all for it.

I'd like to see it happen. We desperately need another puck mover, even if his responsibilities would be limited. Desjardins would make us a better team, even at his age. Just limit his minutes and use him on the powerplay.

Desjardins shoots right. Our hole is on the left side. Even a 7th man, I'd assume would be a lh shot.

I think that Eric Desjardins is the only NHL player that would unanimously be welcomed here, yes he is '' passed his prime '' but heck ... the way that guy skates and passes, I think the Habs D would b e n e f i t !!!

Also the only other human being I could see Captaining the Habs besides Koivu.

I have a tough time really evaluating the habs D depth chart...

It would seem like Bouillon is 6th, but he's like one of the 2-3 better game in game out.

Is Rivet our #3? At which point does Komisarek can be considered it? Is Dandenault our 4th or our 5th? You could make a case for him being top-3 based on last year playoffs..

Really, who's the odd man out?

I think we would need to trade D to get D.
