Do we? The defense is a bit iffy but other than that the team is pretty good in my books.

A lot of faith in the kids. Could use some leadership (the holes i'm referring to)

I'm pretty sure Terry will be down there (hopefully Flynn joins him too). We have some young vets at the blue line too (Samuelsson, Hanley, Redmond?), but I don't know if some of these guys are leader.

Dumont was a great leader... I still have hope he'll be back when we move to Laval and he sees he won't make the NHL anyway.

The goal tending should be very good if Condon clears waivers, the defense we'll have to see how it shakes out, if they get Redmond and Samuelsson that should help but still have a lot of concerns especially the offense depending on course on how the roster looks.

we'll have to see how the roster shakes out, they should have a few leaders and not much in the way in rookies so while they need leaders after losing Dumont, it's the following year when Juulsen, Addision, Bourque, Bradley, perhaps Jake Evans could all be incoming.

Really liking the makeup of our IceCaps, the farm team is going to be a playoff contender this season. Hopefully they play Nikita Scherbak at center between Connor Crisp(LW) or JDLR(LW) + Mike McCarron(RW), a line in which every player can play center & have size. A whole season together as the 1st line would see them find chemistry, each one becoming complete players, capable of playing both the offensive & defensive games necessary against their opponents top line.(Huge in development for them, before moving up to the Habs.)

Truly would like to watch Brett Lernout(RHD) & Philip Samuelsson(LHD) become the IceCaps top defence pairing. They bring good skating, size & physicality, getting a full season with top pairing icetime in the AHL against high end 1st liners & Dmen, could see them ready to make the jump in 2017/18 to the Habs as their 3rd pairing, keeping opponents aware of the punishing hits they will deal out quite liberally. That would give the Habs a very high quality defence throughout the corps, adding Mikhail Sergachev(LHD) into that mix of defencemen, would have opponents drooling with envy, while Price will absolutely enjoy having those types of defencemen in front of his goalcrease, ensuring opponents don't take liberties with their goalies without serious repercussions.

The IceCaps will have great AHL goaltending from Condon, Fucale & McNiven, which should be ample to see them be a threat to win the Calder Cup Trophy this season.

If Crisp is on any of your 3 first line in the AHL, you're gonna have a bad time. He has 7 points in 57 career AHL games (3 years). Reway, Terry or Hudon will probably be the LW on the first line. Also, I'm pretty sure in that case that McCarron would be the center, not Scherbak.

For Lernout, I guess it depends on if Redmond makes the NHL or not and the play of Johnston.

Also, it's gonna be Lindgren, not McNiven

Assuming the goaltending is a duo of Lindgren/Condon, that should be the strong point of the team.

The defense is tougher to say since we don't know the makeup. If you have Redmond and Samuelsson that should help. I liked what I saw from Didier on the defensive and PK side of things. Johnston is a bit of a wild card as he put up points after missing so much time to injury but was just terrible in his own end. Not a fan of Hanley, he was average in the AHL last year but maybe his stint in the NHL will give him more confidence. Lernout is ok, hopefully he continues to progress. Parisi I didn't see much of so we'll see what he does.

For the offense, another case of we'll see who's there. If they have Hudon, McCarron, Scherbak, Reway, that alone should give them some pop. DLR would help a lot on the defensive side of things. Not sure how much offense we'll get from the vets outside if Terry if he's there.

The better question is who paid 526.66$ for a Eddie Pasquale jersey?

I can understand John Scott's jersey going for 937$ but Pasquale?

Doesn't the proceeds go to charity?

You should be asking "who gives $880 to a charity?", the answer would be quite a few people.

Hey Habs fans!

Just curious, how long does your affiliation deal with Brampton last?

This was Hamilton line-up when MB came in.

Of the top-29 players, Beaulieu (best scorer that year), Gallagher and Pateryn are still here.

Actually, if you add Hudon in 30th, all the others are gone.

Now, with Holloway gone, the line-up seems stronger but also much younger.

Unlike many AHL team, we have no veteran in the upcoming year in AHL.

Chris Terry, also 2 of Sammuelsson/Redmond/Barberio

The team is decent but it clearly lacks depth.

Minus the 14 forwards on 1-way deals, Lehkonen (either NHL or SHL) and Reway (will start the year on IR), we only have 13 forwards under contract (12 two-ways and 1 AHL deal)

Barring any other injuries, our current AHL depth looks like this :

Hudon-McCarron-Scherbak
Friberg-DLR-Terry
MacMillan-Grégoire-Farnham
Bozon-Crisp/Eisenschmid-Audette

At the very least, guys like Eisenschmid, Bozon, Crisp and Audette should compete for their spot. (One could even argue that Bozon and Audette would be better off starting the season in the ECHL).

Unfortunately the list of players brought to camp isn't too impressive. The only players I wouldn't mind on the team are Veilleux and Fiore (as a ECHL/AHL tweener like Miceli).

apparently Bozon ended the season pretty strong in STJ. I'd like to see him get a legit shot with some decent guys. Audette might be a good idea to go to the ECHL. I don't know if giving him 4th line minutes would be good for him.

I'm not hopeful about Bozon. He wasn't even chosen by Team France for the Olympic Qualification.

He's definitely still a long shot. The stuff I saw and read though were pretty promising. Enough for me not to quite write him off yet. He'd really have to bring it though.

He'll probably end up playing in Europe more than likely.

Bozon didn't really "end the season strong". He had a two goal game and a one goal game after going pointless most of the season. Having 1-2 good games doesn't really redeem him as a prospect. He's still in my bottom 5 of our prospect pool. Crisp, Sullivan are the only guys I have CLEARLY below him. Even Thrower, Koberstein and Macmillan have a better chance at redeeming themselves. Especially Thrower since we decimated our D depth in the AHL/ECHL.

My guess is that Thrower has almost zero chance of developing into anything. He has had one good year - his draft year.

I'm saying that's how far gone Bozon is as a prospect that Thrower is a more legitimate reclamation projection.

As much as I have liked Thrower in the past, wouldn't agree at all. Bozon has 1 less point then Thrower has games played in the AHL in his career. They let him sit on the bench for much of the 1st half of the season so they clearly don't think very much of him.
