Please please lets not make that huge mistake again. sure invite some prospects to the main camp, but not 60 like last year or was it 2 years ago. It took 5-6 preseason games to trim down to the real preseason team.
I say the real team 24 players, plus a good look see at 1 goalie, 4 dmen, 5 forwards, and 2 coaches special picks. thats 12 prospects in all. This is for the main camp not the rookie camp. The rookie camp is for the rookies, to let them see the real NHL, give them something to shoot for. A chance to strut their stuff in front of the all Habs management.
even more strange to see Louis Leblanc not invited...
Well Leblanc "could" be considered NHL camp invitee so they'd like to concentrate on other players. Strange but Leblanc might seem to have the same status than Dumont....I obviously wouldn't put him at that level, he "clearly" deserve his AHL Status....Unless something else is happening...though everytime we think something is happening...nothing is.
Would McCarron be our heaviest player on the big team?
237lb, holy crap. Thats litterally two Desharnais strapped together.
McCarron weight is crazy. It's hard to believe he isn't fat one way or the other. 18 years old kids with this kind weight are very, very rare. If he ends up making the NHL he'll be one of the biggest player around.
The thing with Leblanc is that he has been worst than Pateryn last season, and Pateryn got called up, he his also one year older than Leblanc. But yeah he could have the same status as Dumont... still Leblanc was invited at the summer camp and Dumont wasn't, right?

That was 2 years ago. Very bad idea indeed.
But my understanding is that they are using big market teams (Habs, Leafs etc.) in order to boost interest in non-traditional markets. So the Habs had a crazy pre-season schedule. Like 7 games in 8 days or so.
I'm pretty impressed by the save percentage of Micheal Condon at every level he had play last year. Is anybody know him a bit? Is there a chance he translates that at the next level (AHL), somehow? Does he have a chance of reaching the NHL at some point?
