I think it's basically just Tinordi/Diaz/Boullion competing for 2 spots on the bottom pair.

And that's assuming everyone stays healthy.

Right player type, wrong player.

It's called depth because injuries happen. Plus I'd rather have Drewiske in the press box than Tinordi/Beaulieu/Pateryn.

Like Murray, but kind of sad for Tinordi... I wanted him so bad in the NHL and i think he is ready.

Yup, it kinda suggests he will return to Hamilton once Emelin is back on track and I don't mind it. Him being the ''leader''(at the back end) on such a young team cannot hurt him, he'll probably be playing like 59 mins per game and it will also probably be his last year in Hamilton. Boyyyy do I like how Bergy does this, no rushing a la Tenderness..

If Murray was an established top 4 calibre guy who brought it physically and with toughness, he'd have already signed somewhere for 4-5 years and 4+ mil.

Habs got him for 1.5 mil on a 1 year deal...see the difference?

I have a hard time seeing Therrien not having Bouillon not in the lineup. So it will come down to Tinordi vs Murray at camp.

Very happy about this. Exactly what we needed. Stay at home, hard hitting defensman that can clear the crease. Toughness on back end is MUCH better now. Add in Tinordi and Emelin when back and we have 3 solid pairings with physicality and offense. Also have the depth to switch up depending on the team we're playing.

Great signing!

Nice, someone to clear the crease. Memories of Craig Ludwig.

Great move. Anyone who says otherwise isn't thinking straight. Our d was soft as butter with Emelin out, we got a hard hitting experienced defender without losing assets. It's not like he'll get top 4 minutes and 1.5 on a one year is a small investment.

If Tinordi shows in camp that he is 100% ready, I'm sure they'll make room. They did for Gallagher.

I don't get how ppl think this has anything to do with Tinordi, we need 8 dmen, Habs always carry 8, Emelin is confirmed to be out to start the year, so without him we have 8 dmen INCLUDING Tinordi.

Unless he ***** the bed in camp, Tinordi is on this team. The Murray signing just puts Bouillon and DD to their role before the Emelin injury being the 7th 8th dmen.

It is an experiment for a season. He will be on the bottom pairing and will provide us with some toughness for the 15 minutes he will be playing a night. I think it is a good risk at 1.5.

Well it's one month too late but I'm glad that Bergevin is aware of the changes we need on defense. Not a fan of Murray but he certainly fills a need and DM > Bouillon & Drewiske.

I guess Bergevin wanted to get this done before Partisan du CH gets to the defenseman

I love this signing, thankfully we don't have to rely on Drewiskie in any capacities except if we have injuries.

Well I guess we'll disagree, I know MT likes Bouillon but don't get he'll use him as much when everyone is heathy, I can see Bouillon spilling duties with Murray on the 3rd pair with Daiz, being the 6th 7th dmen.

Do you really think we re-signed Bouillon mid season so that he would be the 7th D? Bouillon will be a regular whether we like it or not. Also if Tinordi is not a regular then he will be back in the AHL. There's no point in keeping him up to sit in the pressbox.

Have seen Murray play dozens and dozens of times, and I'm struggling to think of one time I saw him line up on the right.

Pretty stoked about this, if it means limiting how much we see Bouillon and Drewiske on the ice.

I like the signing, you really need to be deep in Dmen in this league, and 8 men deep sounds right to be honest. Plus, I like it when young players like Tinordi win a roster spot and are not given a roster spot. If Tinordi forces Therrien and Bergevin's hand, then great.

One thing I wonder with the signing....perhaps Emelin's rehab is coming along slower then hoped?

Campoli went through arbitration so only became UFA mid august so it's not really the same situation

Drewiske gets so much needless hate on these parts it's a little ridiculous. We saw him play average hockey for a tiny sample, and some of you act like he's the second coming of Alex Picard. No idea what he did to generate this much vitriol.

Drewiske is what he's always been - a good #7 or #8 who can fill in for short periods of time without looking out of place. The issue with him is he gets exposed when he plays too much, which shouldn't be a problem with our depth this season, hopefully.
