I think you missed the joke.

Crisp played goalie last year in the OHL for 1-game.

And Brady Vail played defense for an entire month. And was still 2nd on the team in scoring.

Looking forward to what everyone thinks of the Dev Camp. Know WS's will be in depth as always lol. Plus, thanks for posting the link WS, Bennett is one of my fav prospects who has a lot of tools and can be a complete dman playing in all situations. Good leadership abilities as well and should only improve them being the Captain in his senior year.

I knew both but wasn't sure if he did. I've had someone legitimately ask me that since both have played.

I was actually at the game Crisp played goalie lol. Was sad to watch.

Anyway, there's a lot of interesting undrafted and FA kids in that camp, can't wait for the first reports, and thanks in advance for those attenting, Whitesnake and al, it's really, really appreciated
I can't remember being this excited about a development camp. The enthusiasm of the more knowledgeable posters is rubbing off on me. It would be nice to see two or three guys signed to play for Hamilton and a couple of more at the ECHL.

It might tell us something about the guy's character, though. He sounds like a guy who is willing to do anything to help his team

And I've always been a bit disappointed in Tinordi's. But judging a lanky fighter isn't really fair. His technique really needs work, though.
I cringe every time I see Tinordi drop the gloves. It's not pretty. Thrower though sure can throw em.

Yeah but i'm pretty sure he'll get better at some point and be a respected fighter, his lost to Chris Philips was cringe worthy.

I actually got excited when I saw there was unread posts in this thread, and then when I saw WS wasn't here I said "Come on Whitesnake!" much to the confusion of others in the room

Beaulieu seems to have matured a lot during last season.

By the looks of the video, McCarron's skating needs some improvement but it's definitely not terrible by any means. Mostly needs to work on his edge work and some explosiveness in his first strides.

Its nice to hear Leblanc is finally 100%. I'm still a believer. He's a hard worker with skill, vision and he's quite fearless. I hope he spends some time (if not most of the season) with the Habs next year.

I am rooting hard for him. Last year had to be tough on him.

I don't think anyone, who is a true fan, isn't rooting for Leblanc.

I hated the pick but he's a Canadiens prospect and by virtue, I want him to glowingly succeed and surpass expectations given by his biggest supporters.

He's got a good stride, and will only get better with time imho. By the time he's ready for the big show, I don't think skating will be a problem. It really is a work in progress but the basics are there to improve upon and that's what's important.

It's the same for every prospect. As much as I disliked our draft and the Kristo trade I want all our players to succeed. Except Archambust. Something about his face.

Definitely hoping he has a bounce back year. He still has good potential and hopefully can become a top 6 player in the NHL. Has the smarts and skill but still needs the strength.

Absolutely. Sounds like a good kid and a hard worker, and I remember being really impressed with him when he first came up to play with the Habs. If he can get his game back to that level, he could be a real benefit to the team I think. Would really love to see this kid succeed, and I still think he will. Really pulling hard for him.

Edit: Last year could be a character builder for him or a character breaker. I'm betting on it being the former.

McCarron is going to be a crowd favorite, you can just feel it. He is raw but the tools are there. It's a matter of putting it all together. If he wants to develop his entire game, the Hunter brothers and the London Knights is where he needs to go. Play 70 + games per year with that coaching staff would do him wonders. The counter argument is that the NCAA allows players to work on their game with more practices, more time in the gym, less fighting etc. It will be interesting which way he goes. Chances are Tinordi would still be in college had he chosen ND.
