Habs Claim Delmore?

Well, I know the Habs don't really need any more 'offensive punch' with Souray scoring half their goals, but maybe Delmore could be a project until Komi and Hainsey are totally ready to assume full-time roles. Bouillon would be the logical victim in such a situation. Although Delmore is having a bad year both in the plus/minus and in the points column, we all know what he is capable of.

Is this totally idiotic or is there something to it?

Delmore -- yuck. He is no improvement on Bouillon, who's done just fine as the Habs 5-6th defenceman. Besides, I would rather see Hainsey and Komisarek take a regular shift ahead of Delmore. At least they might learn from their mistakes and get better.

hmmm, I am getting the distinct impression thus far that you guys are not partial to Delmore...?

well, a similar project is working for Vancouver with Slegr. He's cracked the lineup with Salo gone from Gautier's cheapshot (should be a good game tonight) and hasn't looked like a liability at all. Quite the opposite on the pp in fact.

Delmore is a worthless player, he can't play D, but since he can't pass he can't be a winger.

Go to the Nashville board and ask about Delmore. He's so bad in his own zone they call him An_y Elmore, because he has no d. I'd be pretty unhappy if the Habs picked him up.

I don't think Slegr is in the same boat as Delmore at all. Slegr's long been considered a solid depth defenseman, which is why Detroit traded for him at the deadline a few years ago. The only reason he hasn't been playing of late is because he asked for a ridiculous amount of money for a player of his calibre.

Delmore's got a big shot. That's it. He's minor league calibre in every other way. Montreal has a big shot in Souray already, and I think Markov's got a fine shot as well. Besides, Souray's been logging 3/4 of every PP, so there's no real need to look for a big shooting defenseman IMO.

A player like Slegr on the other hand would be more useful.

Misleading thread titles

Shouldn't we avoid misleading thread titles such as "Habs claim Delmore" ?

That's a good point, I've changed the title.

He cleared waivers yesterday at noon... he's being sent down to Buffalo's AHL team.

Dang... too bad, we could've had him! ( :p )

Delmore is the most one dimensional player in the NHL Today.



He can run a PP.

Rivet would have loved to se him come to the team because all of the posters here would hate someone else and the boos would be going to Delmore soon enough.

If we want someone to run the PP bring Hainsey up and let him play in those situations, not Delmore. Plus Souray and Koivu on the point works out really good right now, and Markov and Brisebois aren't shabby as the 2nd part of the PP.
