Color me impressed, I had completely given up on him ever coming over, even less so on a regular ELC term. Not saying he'll ever make the big team but we'll at least get to see what he can do.

It's certainly shaping up to be a heck of a draft class for us, which we sorely need after the struggles of the '08, '09, and '12 drafts.



yes, his defensive game is very weak. He's more of a PP specialist until he proves otherwise.



I didn't watch any WC games, the only thing I can add is that he was rumored to have had a concussion, he only appeared in 1 game since Jan 23rd before the WC's.

I don't know if he's 5'10 or not, I will say he did look like he added some weight when I saw him in the Czech league this year.
Reway definitley looked bigger. Looked closer to Ghetto's stockiness. Lot more than the years previous.

It's too bad I have so little hope for him but he could surprise. I think it's worth it to just assume he won't be a Hab and just be pleasantly surprised if he does. So much is stacked against him it seems.

Sad part is he is stacked against himself with the attitude he has shown. Maybe he will wakeup and realize this is a team sports and have a respectable career in the NHL.

Everyone just seemed to have legit NHL potential. Obviously we still have to wait and see but you really can't go by what the critics say. Just like how according to hf we're #17 or something so people just assume our prospect pool's pretty miserable.

I'll stand firm in saying that it's the best it's been in years. The next few years we'll see if I'm right.
I agree, I could see some of them blossoming elsewhere (kind of like Streit & Grabovski did elsewhere) but our pool is the deepest it's been. I think Ghetto, Hudon, Gregoire, Lehkonen, Mac, DLR and Juulsen will all be NHL regulars (400+ NHL games). That's without even adding Bourque, Scherbak, Reway, Fucale, Vejdemo and Lernout to the mix.

So a miniature version of Pierre Dagenais?

You don't really believe the bolded, do you?

Ideally we would let one of them boost their stock and then cash in with a trade, so no, it's not a pressing issue yet. But it's something that'll have to be dealt with.

All Bergy has to do now is somehow sign Nygren to a similar deal and he'll have done a clean sweep of our estranged euro prospects .

For now, Reway has no other place to play than Montreal or St. John's.

If he signs a deal with a KHL team than the Habs will be able to loan him there if he doesn't make the team.

LOL

A Reway-DD-Hudon 3rd line would become the subject of a million threads on these boards.

I hope it happens.

Wow, pleasantly surprised. I thought Reway was going to bail for sure.

I am sorry to say but I agree with the poster who said with Gallagher already on board, we only have room for 1 more smallish player. Not counting Pleks...

To me, Andrighetto shouldnt be part of this team. There are better players than him in the org.

It sucks for Hudon, but I don't think there is a spot for him either.

Three small veterans that we need to ditch are Desharnais, Flynn and Byron. It sucks, but it's reality.

Our 4th line needs to be bigger/meaner. I wouldnt mind starting McCarron on the 4th line and let him get used to the NHL there. Promote him from time to time when there are injuries to our main forwards.
I think Hudon and Andrighetto will be used as trading chips. I could see either being a part of a package as early as this draft. I like Hudon, but I feel that he isn't really a part of this team's future plans.

I think the tough decision will come down to Reway vs Lehkonen.

I think we can afford having a small player per line.. Gallagher is already there. I think it comes down to:

Lehkonen v. Hudon
Reway v. Andrighetto.

Though I think Gallagher doesn't qualify as small and believe there's a spot for lehkonen, hudon and Reway along with Gallagher.

Reway is exactly the kind of players we should try to stay away from in the future. His performance at the Worlds is all but reassuring.

If he improves his defensive game, I don't see why he can't be to us what Namestnikov is for Tampa Bay.

Grabovski had similar issues and he still pulled off a more than remarkable career. I'd rather have a Lehkonen than a Reway in the playoffs but we badly need skills, we shouldn't turn our backs on free talent because they're not good christian boys.

He says one thing and then does the complete opposite.

Anyway I hope this young guy works out for the Habs.

Perfect bookend for our special teams...
Reway on PP and Byron on PK.

Well to be fair, none of the kids were ready last year and neither were they during TC. Flash was the better option by far and he outplayed them without a second of a doubt. There was a huge difference between the Ghetto we saw in september and the one from January and on out. This team is a contender on paper, there has never been a case of a player staying too long in the AHL.

For a small unidimensional offensive player, he sure as hell didn't do **** in the Worlds...

When you're small, offensive, and that you have the reputation to talk the talk instead of walking the walk and have attitude problems, you better as hell produce when you have the chance!

Did Slovakia even score a goal all tournament?

He's still young and that team sucks. He's produced everywhere else.

Throw him on the third line with a solid defensive centre like Eller and give him minutes on the PP.

Even if he just helps the PP that'd be huge for our team.

He's very talented player but I think Habs making a mistake anyway. This guy is not exactly a team player and always creates a bad mood in the locker room and undermines the authority of the coach. In addition he's got problems with slot machines and a diet. Really surprised with Habs willing to take the risk. As far as I'm concerned, I wish him good luck and the same goes to Habs and their fans, you gonna need it. Hope I'm awfully wrong about him and his development but I saw what I saw here in Prague when he played for Sparta.
