The game I saw him in, he was playing as a well-positioned, solid defensive defenseman. This was a game where most of the Dogs were really bad (especially in their own zone), but Rene was solid and didn't make any glaring errors.

He was putting up some decent offense in the last few games of the season, if I recall.

I doubt that Danis sees any time in the playoffs, unless Damphousse falls apart. I've seen Vydareny but only when he was with the Moose. He's a great skater but I didn't see much offensive abilities in the 1 game, but it's only 1 game.

Vydereny is the poor man's Ron Hainsey.
Good skater/speed/mobility, not physical, makes a lot of mistakes defensively, can be good sometimes...but what sets Hainsey apart are his offensive abilities. I thought Rene has a solid leapway pass, but he will never be very good. The main reason he was acquired was to fit in with the European's like Plekanec and Hossa who lost Josef earlier. I think he is there for chemistry puposes...and as Dykhuis's replacement.

yeah, but I think we'd rather have Dykhuis over Traverse (I guess you forgot about that one ). Makes sense to me if he replaces one of the two, and the other one gets replaced by a prospect next season (could Korneev come over? maybe.)

I more or less agree with your evaluation. I've seen him with the Moose a few times earlier this season but not with the Dogs. I expect he must be playing better defensively under Jarvis' tutelage since he has positive +-. He was solid during the Moose's playoff run last year apparently.

Now that an entire season has passed, which forwards do you think are most ready for a promotion, assuming Juneau, Dackell, and Perreault move on?

From what I've seen in Hamilton over a dozen games or so this year, Plekanec is the closest IMHO. Wether there is role for him in Montreal is up for debate. Some would believe that Perezhogin could make it out of training camp next year. He certainly has the skills but I'm not convinced he can adapt to NHL calibre play just yet. It did take him a while to get use to the AHL after all. I'd love to be proven wrong, mind you.

Thoughts anyone?
