Bergy and Dudley like to get things done. It's refreshing.

Is he going to be traded by the Blazers? Seems like a lot of guys are going to graduate from this year's team and it would be pointless to keep him for a rebuild.

Galchenyuk, Collberg, Hudon, and now Bozon with contracts from the 2012 draft class. Thrower, Vail, and Nystrom are the only ones without.

Bozon is such a fun player to watch when he's on. Amazing hands, great shot, and fast skater, plus he's also plays with an edge.

71 in 71 in the WHL as an 18 year-old. Impressive. Now I know for most people in this forum CHL stats mean nothing after you make it to the big time, but if he keeps this kind of production up for next year or better, I like this 3rd round selection by MB, TT, and the scouts. Well done.

I agree, I've watched him play a couple of times this year. He really impressed during those games, small sample size for me though.

One of my favourite picks from that draft. I was really pulling for him to make it. Glad to see he's on his way.

Actually he had 71 points in 71 games at 17 and 91 points in 69 games at 18.

Will he be back in the WHL next year? I know he's 19 now.

Unless they plan to play him in the NHL, he has to go back in the WHL as the AHL is not an option at 19 for CHL draftees.

If Huberdeau did it, so can he. No problem with him going back at all.

Does anyone have any idea why management decided to sign Bozon and Hudon this early? Unless they make the Habs next year, and they probably won't, their contracts only kick in come 2014-2015.

I'm fine with it, but I was just curious if anyone had a hypothesis on the timing.

My guess is before the season the Habs set goals/expectations for draftees and if they meet/exceed them they get a contract. I base this on nothing more than see who was signed and not signed.

- Vail had similar production to last season (understandable as the team relied on him a lot defensively to the point he actually played D) but technically not much improvement statistically.
- Thrower regressed statistically and struggled/off ice issues to the point of being healthy scratched (iirc).

Collberg, Bozon, Hudon on the flip side showed a lot of improvements on the stat sheet and likely in terms of play.

Huberdeau was wasting his time in the Q, he looked unmotivated and wasn't playing well.

To me it's simple, they know they want them to play pro in 2 years so may as well sign them now instead of risking a tougher 11th hour negotiation.

maybe you peeps can help me with hockey futures rankings-- they picked leblanc over galchenyuk for prob. of success? is that because of the injury? ive always wonder how they randomly throw the numbers together and yet guys with less talent [more 'tude' maybe] are picked to be better chance prospects. like colberg and kristo have better probability over gallagher. makes me go hmmmmm...

It means they have a better chance of reaching the potential set.

IE: Lets say Galchenyuk is an 8.5 C and Leblanc is a 6.5 B. That means Galchenyuk has the potential of being a 1st line stud and Leblanc has the potential of a third liner. However, in HF's mind there is a better chance Leblanc becomes an NHL third liner then there is Galchenyuk becoming a 1st line stud.

Just like if a guy is 6.0 A he doesn't have the high potential to be anything more than a bottom-six checker but has a very good chance of making it in that role.

Yeah i meant that lol. Wow i'm a bit impressed. Lets see what happens in 2014. Looks good though as an 18 year old to be above ppg in the WHL. Not to sound like a debbie downer but isnt the WHL the weaker of the 3 leagues in terms of talent pool? Does anyone know anything about this or can verify this for me?

Man Bozon has one sexy wrist shot! And he seems to have that instinct to sneak behind the defense like most goal scorers do.

A 6'1 natural scorer that plays a gritty game on the LW is just what the doctor ordered for the Habs. I really hope he pans out.

Do you guys think there's any chance him or Hudon get their 9 games trial at the beginning of the season if Gionta isn't ready to go or someone else is injured?

I think Kristo would have a shot before Hudon or Bozon.
