Anyone know anything about these guys besides Mayer?

Sounds like AHL depth.

Love the St.Pierre signing. Good move for Hamilton, he put up 59 points last season with Rockford.

Here's the AHL great vet scorer I was saying we'd needed to get. Totally undersized, but it's not like we are surprised. But then we counterattack the "undersized" factor and get Tarnasky. And then we conclude by signing Mayer...

St-Pierre is a great addition for Hamilton, not sure why management loves Mayer so much though.. wish Tokarski would've got the bulk of the starts in Hamilton, doubt that happens now. Tarnaski is a nice addition as well for them and likely means ****** Stortini isn't coming back.

Oh wait, it's THAT Tarnasky. Alumni of Vityaz Chekhov's infamous goon squad.

Replacement for Stortini I guess. Maybe an upgrade.

Tarnasky has played 250 games in the NHL, decent fourth line center callup in case of injuries. 6'2, 224 and plays with nastiness (thus the nickname Nick 'Nasty' Tarnasky)

can he fight? = yes



I am in the 'I hope Tokarski gets the bulk of starts' club

Productive AHLers. Nice.

Our really young farm team needs to taste success, and be productive. Good veteran acquisitions for Hamilton could pay major dividends down the road.

But just great additions with St-Pierre and Tarnasky. Perfect for Hamilton. But Mayer....geez....why is the love??? Sign Tokarski please. No Mayer and Condon for the Dogs...that will be disastrous and I liked Condon in his first day but there's a difference between this and real game situations.

Well Hamilton needs some help. This was more than evident last season. At this point, replacing crap like Stortini and Hagel will do the bulldogs a lot of good.

St. Pierre is a fantastic signing for the team, he can be their #1 C and will give them some badly needed offence.

Tarnasky brings size and some toughness to the bottom lines. He can actually play some decent hockey, unlike Stortini.

The Robert Mayer fascination is really annoying and I don't understand a 2 year deal. He's not a good AHL goalie.

MSP is a good scoring vet signing for Hamilton. And Tarnasky is a decent fighter. Sounds good to me!

One thing is sure with those additions....Dogs looks already a whole lot better. But we need goaltending. If you don't want to sign Tokarski...well sign Michael Hutchinson out of Boston or David Leggio. Leggio would be an upgrade.

Always thought Tarnasky was 6'5.

Good moves for a young farm club.

I went to Hamilton for three games last season, each of them terribly disappointing, some of the worst hockey I've seen.

Glad that this (and some new guys coming over) should help

Don't worry, Condon is all the protection you need.

Like the Tarnasky and St.Pierre signings, both can be strong AHL veterans who can help the Habs as call ups. St.Pierre is a high end AHL offensive guy who could step up and contribute in the NHL for 8-10 games. Tarnasky brings size and toughness, lots of NHL experience.

St.Pierre is the kind of players Hamilton was missing last year after Palushaj was claimed by Colorado and Geoffrion got hurt.

My guess on the Dogs lineup as of now:

Andrighetto - St. Pierre - Leblanc
Bournival - Holland - Thomas
Tarnasky - Nattinen - Blunden
Quailer - ? - Fournier

Beaulieu - Pateryn
? - Nygren
? - Ellis
Dietz (or he plays the left side, or 1 of the other 3 RD plays the left side)

Mayer
Tokarski

They want Bulldogs to be competitive this year. Thats a good thing.

But 2 centers?

Great great news ponctuated with a more troubling one....A 2-year deal to Mayer might mean that they envision him as their starting goalie....That would be terrible.

I wouldn't want to stretch him too thin though. He could falter and then we'd be in BIG trouble
