This could also be Carriere helping himself. There is the strong possibility that Carriere handled these signing. He is the Laval Rocket GM now. I'm not saying MB didn't have a hand in it. But the driving force could have been Carriere.

With all this depth siging at league minimum 2 way etc... do draft picks even matter much nowadays? Serious question. Unless it's a top 10, why not just trade 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th for 3 years to land a star C?

Big body. 11 goals once with the Laffs. If he doesn't make the big club out of camp he's got to be an early call up.

Yes it is all important. You don't make up your farm team with your draft picks only. It will be a team of 20-23 year olds all the time. You need some veterans in there. You need a good mix. A lot of people associate the development solely with coaching. But a good part of a prospect's development is learning from veterans. They have a lot more contact with their teammates than with anyone else.

Surprised to see he hasn't actually played in the ahl in 3 seasons.

For now he just needs to be better than Mac/JDLR/Hudon/Martinsens/Mitchell.

If he really wants it he doesn't have an all star field to beat out.

Probably ends up in the AHL but good to have some internal competition.

I really liked him on the Leafs, and I feel he was mishandled by Babcock and Lou. Hes got the tools to be more then a bottom 6 player.

I wish him the best and hope he performs well for your team.

Hope he competes for a spot with the big team. I would love for him to make the most of this opportunity. Intriguing potential as a sleeper.

I'm liking this signature more and more. I like the potential, much higher than Martinsen. If Holland and DLR do pan out, pretty sure Mitchell, Martinsen and, even if I love the guy a lot, Byron, will be expendable.

Byron is the fastest man alive.

Does he still have a chance to turn his career around?
Judging by his highlights, he has a ton of skill

Yeah I don't think he's an AHL player for the Habs.

Great AHL player. He's a rich man Darche type of player.

Darche? The guy was not even drafted...

Holland is a first round pick.

I feel like he will get his career on track with us under Julien.

Holland will most probably never live up to his draft status. His best year were when the Leafs landed Marner and Matthews and were due to the lack of depth.

Even then, he only managed 27 points -16.

At best , he replaces Mitchell or Martinsen.

Mitchell has fallen off a bit so this could be a good add.

Yes I remember when abandoned defence and sprinted past Tanner Glass in game one of the playoffs. It cost us a goal and it happened to be the game winner.

0.268 ppg (19 pts) vs 0.218 ppg (17 pts) in a year with less injuries. Mitchell has not really fallen.
