There may be a need in Hamilton for another enforcer.
With Tinordi, those two did a total of 58 fights.

As for Mayer, he was the best until Tokarski came on board.
For now, it seems that three 23 years old goalies are going to compete with the Dogs.
Condon may be interesting but he has less than 4 ECHL games and 5 AHL games.
Maybe getting Garnet Exelby. One vet d-man that can drop them.

Isn't the agent the one who is supposed to take care of these things?

The "scores" at sites like DropYourGloves and the "winners" at HockeyFights.com are so subjective and homered up that you cannot rely on them as being accurate.

Lost in this discussion is that Tarnasky scored 16 goals last year in addition to being an effective enforcer.

Everybody seems to be penciling him in on the Dogs' 4th line. Not gonna happen--look for him on one of the top-2 Bulldogs lines this season, protecting the little guys and chipping in offensively.

Never seen a team with so many RH shots. It's hard to draw up a line-up!

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

I'm hoping Tarnasky makes a return in the NHL on our 4rth line. We need guys willing to drop 'em against teams in our conference, and he dosen't shy away from it unlike the new Moen and isn't as brainless as White when it comes to the rough stuff.

He also had the guts to fight Lucic and Orr previously in his career, he might want another shot at them wich is a good thing in my opinion, because taking them out of their game for a few minutes is always good when we play TO or BOS. He might even want to instigate against them, something that rarely happens anymore. Would be a great fourth line against the goonsquads they like to ice against the Habs.

Parros - White - Tarnasky ----- assuming they play 6-7 mins max.

Considering how tightly linked the Canadiens franchise and Bell are, not sure I'd want to be asking that on Twitter if I were him.

Might as well just give the other team a goal with a line like that. Parros will hopefully only be playing about 10-15 games. He's awful and Tarnasky is in the AHL for a reason. Neither can play hockey anymore.

I think Tarnasky is a better hockey player than Parros.

In Anaheim, Parros was a + player the majority of the time. He was a - in Florida because their defense wasn't that good.

Shouldn't have that problem in Montreal, eh?

Therrien uses his 4th line regularly. I doubt we see a line like that unless injuries hit. I'm actually still surprised we acquired a guy like Parros knowing how Therrien likes to role all 4 lines.

Bell owns part of Toronto, too, so he can do as he pleases.

MSP will bring much needed offense to this dogs team and good leadership for the upcoming prospects in the system. The guy knows how hard it is to crack the NHL and he tasted it. Big weapon to have in a farm club.

I'm a fan of this and look at Beaulieu on the PP with some weapons around him such as MSP and Thomas " the snipe". Looking forward to next season!

Why the hate for Mayer? He has improved every year (starting from really bad, yes), goalies peak late, and the habs don't have a lot of depth at the position. He was inconsistent last year but he had mostly good games.
