He was signed to be one of columbus' top two centers last year, but ended up being stuck with Balastik for most of the season, who wasn't quite ready for prime time.
He's a great faceoff man, and good defensively, which Carbo will like.
2003-2004 Ranked 14th in the NHL in face-off percentage (56.3%)…
1998-1999: Ranked 9th in the NHL in face-off percentage (56.7%)…
I'd like the Habs to sign him if they can somehow get rid of Bonk. He and Pleks can push Ribs for the second-line spot if he falters. Hrdina is a pass-first, shoot last type, which we Hab fans are quite familiar with.
Hrdina and Shanahan added while Bonk is subtracted would work for me. We'd still have room to add salary at the deadline if we're in the hunt.
NO ONE is good enough for you guys!!!!!!!!! Every player mentioned is shot down !!!! What do you want Gainey to do ??
What is the point of signing a fringe play like HRdina when you have young guys that want/need to play. Us Habs fans don't want a signing just to see some action. We want something that will help our team. I don't think Hrdina will help our team especially with the centers we have that are pretty much all better then him.
