Michael Bournival sent down on conditioning stint

Per RDS text alert.

Guess this means he's healthy and ready to play, which is good news.

For a conditioning stint or is there just no space in the lineup for him?

He'll be back for the playoffs. We have so many bodies I figured he would get sent down when he became healthy.

Not surprised by this, he was the odd man out due to a variety of reasons (waiver status, experience, handedness, role).

Is he bring sent down for conditioning? He is clearly better than some players in the lineup.

To my knowledge, conditioning stints are only for players who would otherwise need to clear waivers to play in the AHL.

I wouldn't say 'Some' but i'd much rather have him on the ice than Moen.

Just checked Twitter and a few reporters are calling it a 3 game conditioning stint.

Well Parros and Bourque weren't in the line-up the last couple of games.
I can't imagine whom else you think is behind him.

Still with his very promising start, go ahead and pump him all you want.
You'll probably be right soon. We all hope so.

Even if he is not waivers eligible, he needed to be added to the Bulldogs roster before the trade deadline to be eligible for the remaining of the AHL season.

Even with Bournival sent down... doesn't this team have 24 players? Aren't they allowed to have only 23 up with the club?

Lets say we go with last nights lineup and bournival sent down... doesn't this team have 4 healthy extra skaters in Bourque White Parros and Murray?

I believe after the trade deadline there is no roster limit as long as you are under the cap

Valuable info there, thanks. I guess we'll see when/if the Habs call up to really know for sure if he's there for conditioning or for good.

After the trade deadline, the NHL roster has no limit. I believe the only limit would be the NHL contract limit, which I think is 50 or so. So you technically can have 50 players on an NHL roster after the trade deadline.

He might as well be playing. Habs seem to have the right forward mix atm, so sending him down to play is the right call.

The dogs website says it is indeed for a conditioning stint.

Time to read the RDS comments, bunch of people that don't understand what a conditioning stint is.

I really like Bourny but he should have spent most of the season on Hamilton imho.

He will be back for the playoffs, for sure. I hope he scores some for Hamilton and get his game back.

Right now, the line up is filled with players with more NHL experience. Let's live or die with them.

Not me, Moen has played he's role perfectly, doing all the small things, Reliable defensively, good a long the boards and get's the puck out of he's own end. He also has a tone of playoff experience, exactly the type of player you want on your 4th line.

Even with him down for conditioning stint. Lets say he comes back.

How do we fit everyone in?

Pacioretty Desharnais Vanek
Galchenyuk Eller Gallagher
Briere Plekanec Gionta
Moen Prust Weise
Bourque White Parros
Bournival

Gorges Subban
Markov Emelin
Murray Tinordi
Weaver Bouillon

Price
Tokarski
Budaj


With Gorges and Bournival both now out as it is... They still have 25 players up which includes the 3 goalies.

How are so many guys up at once?
