Glad to hear, like a lot of things about Thrower...skill, shot, toughness. If he can improve his skating he can potentially be a #3-4 NHL d-man.

I'm probably one of the few who still believe that he has untapped potential.

Yup good signing, better than losing him for nothing as a ufa or him going back in the draft. There is no rush for him to make the big club. Hopefully we can develop him.

I agree with you. I think he has "it".

Very interesting prospect, if he can put it all together he could be a minor gem.

He's similar to Bieksa, and Kevin took 4 years of college and 3 years in the AHL to finally make the NHL.

Never enough RH d-men.

With Patteryn, Ellis, Dietz, Nygren and now Thrower, habs can surely find one to play behind PK in the next few years. Beaulieu and Emelin can handle the job in the meantine. Let's keep Weaver for one more season, too.

Tinordi is still better on the left side. I would keep him there.

Yep, I remember when he started getting a little hype in the Canucks org and I thought nothing of it. It was the last lockout where he had his first full season in the AHL and then I was sold. But he only really spent one full season in the AHL, not 3.

Really? Is that how hard the fan base is on Thrower? He hasn't even played a game of professional hockey before! Obviously he won't step in right away, but there is a lot to like and work with. He has battled injuries the past two seasons since being drafted.

In the games I saw him with the Giants this season, and he was easily their best D. He does everything well, and was putting up some serious numbers before finally shutting it down. He hits, fights, makes a good 1st pass, skates well when not injured and is has gotten better in his own end every year. He plays with emotion, and that's probably his biggest downfall too. You know when he's pissed off on the ice, lol.

I think he will spend almost all of this ELC in Hamilton. He's a blue collar type player, and he's going to have to earn his spot in the NHL. If he puts it all together I think he has the potential to be a player similar to Kevin Bieska.

Not a world beater, but had to be signed. Yet, I think the same of Vail who clearly doesn't seem that he will....

Tinordi is better off just being in the lineup, we'll worry about the side later. If they send him back to the Hammer yet again to start next season, what can I say. A year of lost NHL development while MT favored guys who shouldn't even have had regular shifts.

Same with Beaulieu -- they send him to the AHL and just leave him there -- and then he's being asked to step in and be a fireman in the playoffs. If he's your go-to guy when one of your top 6 Ds falls, how does he not play more than he has at the NHL level this past year.

It seems very possible that Thrower will be in the ECHL.

I don't see why they would send Tinordi or Beaulieu back to Hamilton, really.

With Murray and Bouillon out, and Markov and Weaver's future up in the air, I don't see that happening.

This isn't a video game. Putting tinordi in the lineup won't magically make him ready. Is everyone forgetting that everytime he with the Habs, he was far from good or looking like he was ready?

Say it with me: there is nothing wrong with playing in the AHL...
