One can only hope they stick Leblanc on the top line. Am I correct in saying that Lefebvre stuck him on the 3rd line last season?

The organization seems to love Mayer for some reason. I thought he was better last year, but...by AHL backup standards.

I thought Mayer played well early in the season and would keep the Bulldogs in a lot of games. I remember all of us being shocked at how decent he was playing at the start of the ahl season.

I'm happy with these signings, but any AHL vet not named Hagel or Stortini would have made me happy. They were awful.

Well, I thought he was outplaying Desjardins, but he has the reputation for being inconsistent, not flat out bad. I think he gets more hate around here than he deserves, though I seriously doubt he has any NHL upside.

And we did pick up another AHL goon, but the sad thing is Tarnasky is actually better at hockey than Hagel or Stortini. Actually, he might be better than Parros.

It's because our standards weren't as high and Cédric was close to terrible. But Mayer still showed his inconsistency. We might ask Montreal what he thinks...sees a lot more games than we do.

Mayer can be an okay backup I guess, St-Pierre will fill the veteran point producer AHL teams need and Tarnasky will protect the kids I like this.

I think we'll see Tarnasky compete with Blunden for a callup if there is alot of injuries on the big team though. With that in mind I could see Bergevin signing a no talent AHL goon like Hagel if Tarnasky is called up.

It sounds like these guys are all good depth signing. With so many injuries in the game today you need guys down on the far team to be able to step in and help the big club

I would hope Tinordi will start in Hamilton, let's not rush the guy.

Agreed. Sign Tokarski. He should be Hamiltons #1. He earned it last year and beat out Mayer as for as I'm concerned. He played really well for a really bad team last season.

He's ready, he was solid in the NHL at the end of the year and in the playoffs. I see him as a lock to start with the Habs, especially with Emelin out because of his knee injury.

He won't play for the Habs anyway. It's an AHL depth signing. Doesn't really matter much what his height is, as long as he can play and be a leader.

Good job Bergevin, you managed to make the Dogs Top 6 even smaller than the Habs

Good signings! St-Pierre and Tarnasky are the kind of vets we needed. St-Pierre has probably been one of the most productive AHLer of the past decade (with Aucoin, Giroix, Haydar and Locke).

I don't like the Mayer signing. Hopefully Condon won't spend his entire ELC in the ECHL

Solid AHL depth. Nothing wrong with these moves, although I still don't understand the Mayer love.

He wasn't that ready IMO, he still need 20-30 games in hamilton ready playing there with absolut physicality like in his second callup in Mtl.

I want the Habs to sign a guy like Alberts, O'Brien, O'byrne, Murray, Fistric for this purpose to have a veteran guy stepping up for Emelin and as a Mtl backup.

I want Drewiske to be a 8th D lol.

As a backup I don't see any problem, they offered a QO to Tokarski
