Tryout for Hamrlik?

This is pure speculation, but Hamrlik is skating with our vets in Brossard and he looks in shape and all...

How about a tryout for the old guy? No harm to it, it's a chance to see if he has anything left, and a chance for him to try to have another year.

I think he did this last year as well. Just likes it here, I think.

I seriously doubt he'll crack our top 7 on defense and I'm sure he'd rather play overseas than in Hamilton, so I don't really see the point of a try-out.

Only if Spacek comes out of retirement too.

I guess a tryout never really hurts anything. I wouldn't have any real anticipation of signing him beyond that, pretty much regardless of how he plays, unless some ridiculous string of injuries fells multiple other D in our camp.

noooooo this guy is clearly too old to be useful in my eyes. The last year he was with us, it was awful. He cheated on so many ways because he was always out of gaz. Can't even imagine 2-3 years later how this could have anything good to offer. He couldn't crack NYR nor WASH line up, he won't cut it here.

He likes living in Montreal - we paid him a million more than anybody else would and he got to get fat and comfortable and amass delay of game penalties - what's a fat, lazy czech to do?

I always loved him and in my book he's way better than Drewiske. He's also a good veteran. I would invite him to the camp and see what he still can do to the team.

Might as well put a Hamrlik jersey on a tortoise. It'll skate just as fast and shoot just as hard, but won't be as soft.

I have no issue giving him a tryout, however guys like Whitney and Gilbert would be better options.

No, no, no, no and no again. Please, no.

He didn't play much last year because he is too old and slow.

I don't see the use. Given what we have on D, Hamrlik isn't likely to crack our line up and with the extra cash we have, I'd rather have Morrow at camp than Hamrlk as he addresses a need we actually have.

Maybe we could try to bring back to life the infamous Dandouillon pairing while we're at it.

Let's make our hockey version of The Expendables.

The last year with us he was out of gas because we used him as a #2, even #1 guy way too much! He was supposed to be a #4.

I doubt he would make the team but I would prefer him over Drewiske

Why do people want this guy back? He was done 2 years ago he didn't get any younger in those 2 years/ better off giving a guy like Dan Cleary a try out

We have 8dmen on 1 way deals, but with Emelin hurt, it seems like Tinordi is a lock to crack the top 6 this year, with Bouillon/ Murray and DD44 being the pressbox guys.

But if someone gets hurt, or Tinordi ***** the bed in camp, we'd have room to add someone, highly unlikely, but you never know, but Mtl carries 8 dmen so there is a small chance.

Also liked Hamrlik but he was BAD last year, specially with the Rangers.

Parts of this fanbase has a strange infatuation with retreads
Be they old, withered, gnarled, spent, broken, punch-drunk or mummified

Hamrlik and Dandenault are totally different players
