Audette and the habs: TERMINATED

well guys, it's officially over for Claudette and the Habs. Gainey has started the cleaning up process. It's kind of sucky when u think about it, ur being paid 3$million a year, and ur free, yet nobody wants u. guess it's a long hard look in the mirror for Audette now. Who will be next?

Yep, straight from RDS:

C'est donc dire que le Canadien versera au 82 la somme de 1.4 million cette saison. La saison prochaine, s'il y a une saison, le Canadien lui versera le 2/3 de son salaire.

They'll pay him 1.4 million this year, and 2/3 of his salary next season (if there is a next season)...

Or u can check the link www.tsn.ca its official . I can remember the first couple of games when he came to the habs after the trade he was flying untill the wrist injury . ANd when came back for the playoffs two years ago he played well then also . I was never a Audette hater he had a good career and what ever he does now good luck to him . I just hope some other team signs himand give him another chance maybe one more , especially if he can surround him with bigger players he could be effective watch out ! oh yah just to add another thing Drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the 9th round (183rd overall) in 1989
NOt bad at all for a 9th rounder ! 9th rounder are usually long shots !

He was doing great when we acquired him.. then his wrist was slit.

So the guy can't score with only one good arm, a lot of players in the league can't score with two. Yes it's a good day for the Habs to see him leave for good... but let's not forget that he hasn't been a bust or a bad acquisition, he's simply damaged good now after that ugly unfortunate injury.

No point kicking a guy when he's down, we have plenty of health under-achievers left to pick on.

As for him thinking his career isn't over, I think he's dreaming if he thinks any team is going to be interested.

So that's 3 buyouts, and we're not halfway through the season... what's the record?

I wouldn't be surprised if some team gave him a try. What would they have to lose? Czerkawski couldn't score here either, but regained his touch. Depends on whether Audette couldn't stick with the Habs due to his injury, or his inability to fit into Julien's system.

I agree- it's too bad it didn't work out. Well, I hear Czerkawski and Asham are looking for a linemate...

Maybe the Isles will give him a call. They just lost right-winger Mark Parrish for 6 - 8 weeks.

I doubt there will be any more buy-outs. The roster will more likely be trimmed by way of retirements and non-renewal of expiring contracts.
I wish Audette well but i'll reserve sympathy for a more worthy cause than a wealthy, unemployed hockey player.

Great News... Claudette was just taking ice time away from the young guys. BG definitely has a plan, and is executing it, one move at a time!
