Sometimes drafting by need pay off.

Bergevin must be going crazy
Personally my thinking is that when the cupboards are bare, you draft the BPA. Once you've started to stock up pretty well, then you can start drafting by need, and i think Timmins and Bergevin have been following that blueprint.

Yes, but he is still very streaky. Just came off a loooong pointless streak. If he can work on his consistency, and continue to use his size, then we may have a very exciting player on our hands.

Apparently the Habs offered Jack Nevins a 2 way contract. Never heard of him. Someone have an analysis on him.

SOme poster here wanted us to offer him a contract during the summer, i don't remember who though. He also received offers from three other teams, so we don't know yet if he's gonna choose the Habs or not.

I like how Bergevin is trying to acquire big bodies in McCarron, DLR, Crisp, Fournier and now Nevins, it shows a will that previous managements didn't have. This way he can get players in the mold of Thomas, Andrigettho or Reway.

He played for Almonte. Would be nice to see a guy from close by sign with the habs. He should take it...

He is a mean mofo. My favorite Islanders player by far. He works hard, he is a good skater, he hits everything (and really hard). He is mean but he is smart. He can play in the front of the net on the powerplay, he can play in a defensive role. He will drop the gloves against anybody and go toe-to-toe. Most of his offense comes by forechecking really hard and crashing the net. He improved a lot his shot and his patience with the puck. He learns very fast. Obviously he isn't going to be a Milan Lucic, but he has everything to become a very physical 4th liner.

Nevins was awful in the OHL... Nice to see such a fast turnaround.

In the couple games I've seen him play this year he looked great. Always made an impact by playing hard. Could be an interesting player.

Not sure how I feel about giving him a two-way contract, but he hasn't signed yet and there's still tons of time for him to continue to improve. Speaking of overager FA signings, I would have liked to see the Habs go after Tyler Gaudet, but Phoenix jumped all over him.

Interesting, to bad that article says he is not the best skater but if he can make up with it in other aspects should be worth a try.

Tweet from That (I believe):

Mitch Brown ‏@habsmitch 14m
4-1 win for the IceDogs. #Habs McCarron was essentially invisible. Didn't do much and didn't look interested. He has to be more aggressive.

No points in 15 of his last 17 games AND he takes nights off in the physical department.

Yikes. Yikes. Yikes.

Moen is a good comparison for Nevins.

I was very low on McCarron pre-draft and was kind of dissapointed when we drafted him over a few guys, specifically Hartman.

I know a lot of you here are expecting a top 6 powerforward but honestly id be happy with a 3rd liner. Dissapointing stats and dissapointing physical play. I know its early but he has done absolutely nothing to make me gain confidence in the pick.

I hope im wrong but what I see is a Kyle Clifford type player. Bottom 6 grinder with undevelopped offensive potential.

You cant produce if you dont play quality minutes. This applies in the ohl too and Im sure Mccaron has less of a big role because of guys like rupert, horvat or domi. Expect him to surprise, he has more skills then you guys think dont rely on stats. If he works hard, he should improve his skating.

Connor Crisp floors Hurricanes prospect Sergey Tolchinsky with open-ice check

That's the title of the news article on Yahoo found here ;

http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/jrh...043015288.html

Quote:
Connor Crisp might have just made a lot of OHL defenceman jealous.

Crisp is a good half-foot taller and 60 pounds heavier than Carolina Hurricanes prospect Sergey Tolchinsky, the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds' diminutive dervish, so the impact is not the thing. It's the fact that Crisp, the Sudbury Wolves wing whom the Montreal Canadiens took in the third round of the NHL draft, made such square contact on the Sault Ste. Marie star during the final seconds of overtime in an OHL game on Wednesday.

Two words for that: text book.

Crisp is 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds and Tolchinsky is listed at 5-9, 165, but a smaller player can often peel away to avoid taking the full force of a check. That didn't happen. Lest one worry, Crisp did engage with players his own size. He outworked Edmonton Oilers first-rounder Darnell Nurse and shook free of the 6-5 defenceman to score an overtime-forcing goal in the third period on 'Hounds goalie Matt Murray, who is also 6-5.

That was why the game went into extra time. Crisp also scored the shootout winner to give the Wolves a 3-2 decision over a team that it lost to 10-3 in its season opener in September.

Nice hit!

Nice to see a Habs prospect giving the hit rather than taking it like usual.

What I love about that hit is that he could have really lit Tolchinsky up - seriously injured him and still stayed a clean hit, if he put the shoulder into him - damn...

Smart play. Hitting him with the shoulder could have been a headshot, and what he did was more than enough against a smaller player.

This. The way he had his head down, had potential headshot written all over it.

I too am glad to hear he has really improved, because I was about to post the same thing. He was terrible in the OHL. He essentially ran around charging people and looking for fights. I don't think I ever saw him touch the puck.
