Considering the depth we have at D in Hamilton next year, I would prefer them to target forward/goaltenders NCAA FA.

I still wouldn't turn my back on those guys if we could get them. You can always turn around and make a trade.

We're in good shape. we have 45 contracts out of 50 allowed right now and we should have room for 1 or 2 FA signings from CHL/NCAA next season.

Andrej Sustr put him with Tinordi. That would make a nasty pair.

I hope we go after a forward, it would be nice to have a guy be able to help down in Hamilton and possibly take a spot in the bottom 6 who can chip in a few goals here and there.

You want a big forward ?... If you go on Hockey's Future, the description about this player is even better.


Antoine Laganiere

Fourth-year F, Yale

Age: 22. Height: 6-4. Weight: 215.

Hometown: Ile-Cadieux, Que.

The skinny: Plenty of NHL scouts have visited Yale's Ingalls Rink this season and have come away impressed with his "pro-type body" and how much his skating has improved during his time at Yale... He attended prospect camps for the Edmonton Oilers and Penguins last summer and with the Vancouver Canucks in 2011 ... He helped the Chateauguay Patriots Midget AAA win the 2005-06 provincial Quebec title and the Patriots finished third at the Telus Cup national championship.

This is a good read about Laganière. Habs could use a big body like that.

yeah. He could finish his playing season in Hamilton.

Can he do worse than Berger and Avstin ?

Very good hockey player, my brother played with him on that triple AAA team, as did yan sauve a canucks prospect. He was very tall back then as well, but it looks like he has filled out since then. Very good two way player that sees both ends of the ice very well. Would be a very good signing even if it does not work out

FYI: Avtsin is often a healthy scratch and Berger is not even a Habs prospect anymore.

But yes, Lags should be a target.

Would be cool to get Trevor van Riemsdyk just to cause some hockey drama, lol. Similar to the Bruins drafting P.K.s brother.

I would like to see the Habs sign Dekeyser,Anders Lee and Danny Kristo from the College ranks.Lee would give the Habs a huge center,capable of playing in their Top Nine on any of the lines.Dekeyser is able to play on the 2nd pairing and can relieve on the 1st pairing in a case of injuries.Kristo has excellent skating,goalscoring,playmaking and can play on the PP & PK units.The Habs depth at all three positions these players bring will help make their SC aspirations within their grasp.Add to them the possibilities of trading for Jarome Iginla and Ryan Clowe or signing them as UFA's this summer the Habs could be considered a favorite to take the SC.

Lee was drafted by NYI and Kristo by the Habs. Dekeyser is a real UFA.

I know. That is why I don't think he could be as bad... Therefore, I think he might have a chance to do better.

Apparently Lee has the escape clause in his favor so he will be a UFA too.Kristo is another college player a Hab draftee,all three I would like to sign.Yes I know about all of these players or I wouldn't suggest signing them.I'm not daft.

Rumors last year were that the Habs were one of the many teams intersted in DeKeyser but he's likely to sign with the wings.

If the Habs go after any FA's, I hope it's a goalie as there are several I like but these are some of the forwards that might generate interest,

Greg Carey (STL)
Ryan Walters (UNO)
Kyle Flanagan (STL)
Drew LeBlanc (SCSU)
Rylan Schwartz (CC)
Steven Whitney (BC- teammate of Colin Sullivan)
Matt Leitner (Minn St)
Pat Mullane (BC- also teammate of Sullivan)
Austin Czarnik (Miami Ohio)

They should have a couple spots for sure as they have a few RFA's/UFA's that likely won't be back.

Lee can go the same route that Schultz went last summer by opting out and becoming a UFA. If NYI has trouble signing him, lots of teams should be interested in him since he's a big body and plays a PF game.

Avtsin was a draft pick and it really seems he's being misused for some reason.

Berger was a FA signing. If they signed him, they can surely signed a big body that helps the team in an area of weakness and as a bonus he's a "home town" kid which racks up some PR for him.

The hard part about College FA's is some teams are including promises of NHL time this year to speed up their RFA and UFA clock. MB may or may not want to do this. He is known as a good "salesman" though so that may help him with someone like Laganiere being a home town kid. I would be happy to get him as he fits with what we need.

On top of Bergy being a good salesman, the habs are doing well this season, while being an up and coming team... definitely more appealing to FAs
