Should definitely play over DD, Carr, Ghetto and Terry.

Hudon has always shown more potential than both Andrighetto and Carr in my opinion. He's arguably the best Habs prospects we've seen in the AHL since a certain Tomas Plekanec.

The possibility of fans and media falling in love with a Quebecois player like him is really high, regardless of the flaws in his game. Hudson will have to demonstrate truly exceptional and novel skills to survive the obvious physical issues in his game.
Let's hope he's finally getting a real shot. Unlikely he'll become a Desharnais, getting special treatments from the coach and french media just because he's from Quebec. If anything, I'm surprised how harsh management has been with him so far and how little attention he's been receiving from the media despite the success he's had in the AHL over the past two years.

It will be interesting to see what they do once Lehkonen and Flynn are back. They do have one spot open now that Ghetto was sent down. Terry is in the same boat as Ghetto in that if he plays 10 games or stays for 30 days he will have to clear waivers to go back down. Hudon and Carr both don't need waivers to go back and forth this year.

Terry will be the next down.

Hudon/Carr/Lehkonen battling for 2 spots.

Based on practice, it seems as Carr could be the next going down.

My reasoning was because of waivers only... but it's true Terry is a good surprise.

You'd have to think Lehkonen is staying, simply because of his status (stays or goes back to his Euro club team) and I don't see why they wouldn't give him more time to see if he can stick somewhere in the top 9. I still think he could be a good fit and probably fits as another guy that could slot in anywhere or even sit a few games and still be a valuable part of the team.

I would send Terry down before he needs waivers. I think he'll end up platooning on the 3rd or 4th line going into the playoffs.

Carr might have to go back down just because he can, and I think they know what he is. He's shown he can inject energy and some scoring into the lineup and can play in the middle 6.

But I'd want to see more of Hudon. I think he can play anywhere in the lineup and be effective. I think his experience at centre has made him a much more conscientious defensive player and he's another guy that can create offensive. I'd give him a real chance, like 10-20 games and see what he can do over a longer period.

I think out of the 3 guys still up from St. John's Terry, Carr, Hudon is the order they'll stay up. Once Flynn, Lehks and Redman are back, all 3 will likely be sent down anyways.

Hudon is one prospect they either don't have any future for or just isn't given a legit chance in the big club. For playing limited minutes and making a lot of good plays, he has 3 points in 5 games and is a + player, there always seems like another player is ahead of him. He's starting to remind be of Bournival.

I did not know about the 10 games/30 days waiver rule. Thanks for sharing this!

Hudon will get a serious look here in the next month. This is the Habs organization giving him a chance to prove himself. Habs need to figure out what they have with Hudon as he has only played 5 NHL games.

2 things going on right now with Hudon. He is due for his share of NHL games, and the Habs need to decide if he is part of the future plans or part of a potential future trade.

When was the last time Hudon played C in the AHL? At the practice one line was Pacioretty-Mitchell-Shaw, if he's good at C maybe he could find his spot there

Just over a year ago, don't think he will be at Center in the NHL.

You can't be serious.

What have you seen in his game that makes you think he could be a top six player let alone at centre?

This place .... wow.

They have a real problem down the middle, but Hudon hasn't played center in over a year and even then he never played a lot there. I think that would be putting him in a very tough spot. Was happy with his game tonight though. Nice setup on the Shaw goal.

He is considerably worse than Tomas Plekanec.

By a significant margin.

Make him play with galchenyuk and rad

He can shoot and pass that line would be deadly

I just think Plekanec is done as a top 6 C . I expect ~35 point out of him this year, and it's normal he's 34 year olds

There's more than just point production. Plekanec brings more to the table than Hudon does

He is the Carolina killer, I think 90% of his points are against them.

I just hope Hudon gets enough time as a middle-six winger for it to be clear whether or not he is a viable NHL player.

shutehinside wrote that Hudon will be gone once all of the injured players are healthy again, but I think it's more likely that any given time 1-3 Habs forwards will be injured. It's Flynn today, could be Pacioretty or Danault tomorrow.

He played a perimeter game was really soft on the puck.

I don't see what others are seeing at all.

He's always underwhelmed me at the NHL level and this trip up to the show hasn't changed that opinion at all.

I don't like his skating at all and I don't like how adverse he is to any traffic or areas of conflict. I would much rather have Carr crashing the net and looking for garbage than Hudon gaining the zone and cutting across the blue line to the boards looking to dish off.

That being said, his assist was a good play.
