Yo-Yo Palushaj is back !

Useless if he plays on a 4th line

I guess it's just in case A.K. or Gomez can't play.

Hopefully he gathers a little bit of experience every time he gets called up, and he puts it all together and becomes a legitimate NHL goal scorer.

Right now... he is just a project.

Why didn't we just claim Ben Maxwell? Could have had a 13th forward for the rest of the year. Plus then we win the Maxwell trade.

Palushaj sucks.

Sucks even more that Martin hates Blunden. If only he was 5'9 and not physical. He'd probably get top minutes.

Everyone is wrong. Palushaj was called up to make room for Gomez in Hamilton.

Exactly. What the hell was he going to do playing with Darchebag and Engqvist? He is an offensive player not a grinder or energy guy.

Now I hope he doesn't play at all and AK goes tomorrow but if not, he has to play with Eller. Darche better stay on the 4th line, the guy has one scoring chance this entire season.

Yeesh. Not good. Too many vets down right now. We're going to dig a deep hole if this keeps up. Hope AK comes back soon.

Darchebag that saved a sure goal (or at least a damn good chance) the other night from Ryan Smith?

Let's get something straight. If players are judged on the percentage of their talent they use constructively, then Darche comes off far better than Subban, who often hurts his team by taking penalties or having lapses of judgment. The Habs are weakened when Subban doesn't play intelligently. Why does he act so selfishly?

I like Blunden. You don't have to tell me.

And everyone here knows I hated the Palushaj for D'Agostini trade.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but a team may only recall \ demote players a certain number of times per seasom, correct?

He'll play the 5 minutes Montreal might need him to play on the wing at even strength better than anyone else in Hamilton. That's why he's up, to be a warm body if they need him, so they bring up the best player on the Bulldogs as he's the least likely to play terribly and cost the team. Plus at 22 and near the end of his AHL apprenticeship its not that bad of an idea to see how he plays at the NHL level in a limited role.

Role and type of player have nothing to do with it. He hasn't shown himself to be a better option for top-nine play than Moen or even Darche (who has been a fairly decent 3rd/4th line depth offensive player in Montreal) yet so why throw him to the wolves? Playing against 4th liners and he still has a chance of winning the matchup, that's not likely playing on Eller's line which plays against much better players.

Speaking of that trade

I like d'Agostni since he was called up back in 09
When I heard we trades him I was sad but was willing to give palushaj a chance
I thought this was the year but it looked like he did nothing over the summer to help his chances
It is early to write him off but he isn't looking good out there


Ps-anyone knew why that trade was even made

D'Agostini had just come back from a concussion and was struggling. Instead of waiting out over the summer, we moved him. I didn't agree with it because I know that our coach hates young players (even more-so a few years ago).

D'Agostini is a very good 3rd liner and solid 2nd liner. He's got so much better defensively too.

This Is a example of quitting on a young player too early
Good thing we didn't move patches when he wasn't playing so well

I think Martin would do better in DET

Mostly all vets

Martin wants balance of offense on three lines...so far this year Darche has not contributed anything offensively. That is my point. Palushaj is better off on that line because Moen and Eller are responsible defensively. He will not show you anything playing on the 4th line. You have to put your players in a spot they can succeed. And what you saw from Palushaj at the start of the year proved he will not flourish on a 4th line role. He may be able to show off his skills more with Eller.

D'Agostini was waiver eligible I believe. They couldn't send him back down to Hamilton to finish up his defensive development and the coach probably didn't want to risk playing him in a very tight race for a playoff spot so they traded him for an approximately equal player in potential that was 2 years younger.

I'm pretty sure they only moved d'ago because he wasn't doing anything in the NHL and players were returning from injury. He would have had to clear waivers to go back down and that was their only option.

Moen and Eller are defensively responsible so they are counted on for shutdown minutes because Desharnais can't be relied upon against top six players. There's no place for a raw Palushaj on that line.

That too is a good choose
He looked pretty good under carbo and so did patches
But he was having a off season
So I guess there wasn't much of a option and with waivers needed if sending down

Losing Palushaj on waivers wouldn't break my heart. As a veteran Darche has played smarter than Palushaj and has actually chipped in a few goals, especially on the PP.

Look at that, Palushaj gets put in a semi-offensive role and looks good. He's not far away from being an nhler.

Yep Palushaj NEEDS to play an offensive role to be effective.

In fact, more players than not on the Canadiens are suited to play an offensive style of hockey, which is why I don't think Martin is particularly suited to be their coach not because he's a bad coach, but because his style don't match the Canadiens needs imo. They need someone like Muller who can maximize their potential.
