That's right, but I couldn't help react to "France have absolutely NOTHING player wise". It's just not true, we don't have superstars, most are hard working average players, but you need guys like these to build a team.

We'll see what Bozon does this year with the caps. I'm not expecting much to be honest. Wish him the best though.

David Broll signs with the Beast. Would not be surprised if it is upgraded to an AHL contact or if he signs a PTO at some point (if injuries occur). Very pleased with this signing. Brampton needed some toughness, and he is a legitimate top-six forward in the ECHL.

Looks like the Ice Caps will have a few vets including the following when they clear waivers:

Farnham, Bobby RW
Friberg, Max RW
Samuelsson, Philip D
Matteau, Stefan
Terry, Chris

Assuming Condon, McCarron, and likely Carr and maybe even Barberio will be joining them as well.

It's certainly a great sign for the parent Habs team, to have so many prospects in St.John's that were drafted by NHL teams, besides their own picks. Those 5 players are:

Stefan Matteau
Max Friberg
David Broll
Chris Terry
Philip Samuelsson

All players that have shown their great desire to become NHLers, alongside these prospects are some very good Free Agent signings 12 of them:

Phil DeSimone
Markus Eisenschmid
Joel Hanley
Tom Parisi
Ryan Johnston
Bobby Farnham
Charlie Lindgren
Justin Baker
Jeremie Blain
Mathieu Coderre-Gagnon
Yannick Veilleux
Stefano Momesso

All of these players will have their work cut out for them earning a role on the IceCaps this season, considering there are 11 Habs high draft choices that will be in camp. Making the team when there are 28 players in camp, all with their eyes on the Prize.(First making the IceCaps, then the Calder Cup playoffs, then hopefully joining the Habs for their long run at the Stanley Cup.) Some of these players will likely get the call at Christmas, so the Habs can rest a couple of veterans (With minor Xmas injuries, a time honored procedure since the 60's at least.) Others will probably earn a look after Xmas if there play with the Habs forces the GM to make a decision that is like a late Christmas present for him, IMHO!!!...

All I can say this season, is that making the Habs roster will probably earn you a Stanley Cup Championship Ring, the one with the 2016 - 2017 Montreal Canadiens NHL Champions on it, spelled out in white gold with diamonds spelling HABS & your Number on it!!!...

Go Baby Habs Go!!!...

Definitely the season to go like there's no tomorrow, work your butts off and get that opportunity to play. Then fight like hell to keep that chance, every second of every shift, every period, every game AND every intermission & practice keep your ears & eyes wide open, learning every scrap of knowledge the veterans help you with. Go Habs Prospects Go!!!...

The next opportunity to win that ring could be a very long time, so get on that horse and ride like hell!!!...

This message is for everyone listed and those not listed, and Phil DeSimone whose play with the Bulldogs was great IMHO!!!.......

Crisp with 2 goals and an apple! He's not dead yet!

I remember he had a decent AHL preseason last year I think. I liked him in junior. I wish there was a way he could get it cracking.

Bozon did alright at the end of last year. Super long shots but I'll root for them.

I liked him because he played goaltender once

So any guess for the lineup? I'm thinking McCarron start the year in the AHL and finish the season with the team. Come playoff time, his size will be useful and much needed.

Hudon - McCarron - Scherbak
Terry - De La Rose - Friberg
Matteau - Audette - Farnham
Crisp - Grégoire - Eisenschmid

Samuelsson - Barberio
Parisi - Lernout
Racine - Hanley
Didier, Thrower

Lindgren
Fucale

Seems like the team is short of good forwards with the departures of Holloway and Dumont...

But on defense Johnston will be in the top 6. I was hoping Didier would get more of a shot this year after playing well last year, wonder if he goes to the ECHL with Thrower and or Blain.

Desimone was okay last night. Veilleux was invisible. This Broll character needs to be let go ASAP. Slow player even in the AHL. Last nights game was good. Fucale looks to have a little rust. 2/5 goals last night were weak shots/rebounds

I could see Desimone getting an AHL deal, although I wasn't a big fan of his the last time he played for our AHL club if I recall correctly. Assuming Condon clears waivers, Fucale could be in the ECHL since I don't think they would go with 3 goalies as it would be stupid to have him sit when he needs to badly work on his rebound control.

Used to like Veilleux a lot. We'll see how that translates. But that's nothing more than depth and maybe some Brampton help. Coderre-Gagnon is really surprising.

The pure talent level is a bit higher to start the year so that's good. More experience too, core guys like Mac,Hudon, Matteau, and DLR all have played games with the big team. Farnham, Barberio and Terry will bring some leadership and vet presence. A lot will depend on how much progression Lernout and Johnston have made since last season, they could really elevate that defense. I'm cautiously optimistic, although I've got no faith whatsoever in Sly's ability to get the most out of them...

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

unless they want to break up the big line and Audette impresses,

DLR McCarron Terry
Hudon Audette Scherbak
Matteau MacMillan Eisenschmid
Crisp Gregoire Farnham


The D is going to hard to guess. Samuelsson, Barberio, Hanley, Racine, Parisi, all LD's. Johnston is a RD that can play LD as well.
I can't believe Matteau will play on a 4th line. He has to be better than Eisenschmid and probably MacMillan.

And where is Friberg in your second lineup?!?

The are no roster limit so they'll probably carry 8 defensemen.

Also, Bradley Dyke has no business playing in the ECHL.

Both goaltender already under contract with the Beast (Jason Pitton (17 games of AHL experience) and Andrew D'Agostini) are much better.

Veilleux is basically our first (and only) forward callup so he should end up in St. John's sooner rather than later.

Hopefully MB (or who ever makes those signings for St. John's) will be able to find another Alex Belzile or Joey Tenute if the IceCaps are starving for offense later in the season.

Eisenschmid is likely a 4th liner but imo with his speed he should be more of a defensive shutdown type and use guys like Crisp, Matteau, Farnham, Gregiore as the more physical energy guys. If Matteau can be a defensive forward like MacMillan then so be it.

Brampton surely happy with the 4 guys they got especially Veilleux and Thrower. Even Blain. Brampton should be a good team this year.

Well Brampton can't be much worse then they were last year I would hope. The one guy that I liked as a call up from the beast was Luke Pither, if they need a few bodies and he's still down there I could see him getting another call.

Player for player, I'd say the team that started last season in St. Johns was noticeably better. The IceCaps' opening top six at forward was particularly stronger.

I don't think they'll make the playoffs this year either.
