That leaves Desjardins, Russell and Trotts. It's the last year for Desharnais before he has to clear waivers, should light it up in Hamilton after breaking the record for most points in a season by a Hamilton player, I hope he can stay healthy and break it again.

I think he has a shot at the opening day roster based on what is signed right now. If he has a big camp, I think he could beat out a Trotter or White(though he brings a different element) or Darche.

I could see Desharnais and Pyatt on the same line.

I always like Desharnais. He sees the ice very well. I hope he can get stronger physically.

Maybe another signing today? Price? Maybe not.

(usually Habs announce more than one signing a day)

I think so. i read in the Gazette that he had trouble adjusting to the wing at first, but prefers it now. I could be totally wrong as this is from total memory, someone check it please.

Good for Desharnais, he deserves a legitime shot. As for Lapierre, he is much more effective at RW and Jacques Martin noticed it, I don't think we'll see Lapierre at center again. I remember Carbonneau wanted to convert him as a winger too, last time he was sent to Hamilton, but Gainey decided otherwise.

Yah, and JM also noticed that Spacek is more effective on the RD.

Good news! But I can't see him cracking the lineup as an offensive centerman (line 1, 2 and sometimes the third) in short terms, with Gomez, Plekanec and Eller in front of him. Maybe some moves in the upcoming years.

I really wish the best for this d*mn great - but small... - local boy!

It was the last day to accept the QO.

I guess he accepted it?

I don't really see what your point is, we are speaking about forwards, Desharnais and Lapierre. Yes, Martin put Spacek on RD, but what were his choices? If you don't put him on the right, who do you put there? Gill? Markov? Hamrlik? All these guys would have exactly the same problem, we simply have too many left-handed defensemen, if you didn't already notice it. Gorges is the only left-handed who is comfortable playing on the right side. Hopefully with Subban, O'Byrne, Carle and Webber all right-handed, we won't have this problem anymore in years to come.

Can I get an honest opinion of what type of player he is? Is he soft, rugged... physical.. gritty.. a warrior?

His point is clear. He likes to be in the contingent who have nothing relevant to say from a hockey perspective, but like to hang around here and ***** about things anyway.

As for anyone who thinks Lapierre should be considered as a centre on this team going forward...

nice lineup down the middle! but its funny though, a lot of fans complain that we're too small but somehow no one says Desharnais is too small.

I have respect for guys like him willing to play for 65 K in the AHL pursuing the dream.
I know i would bolt to europe for double/triple the money.

Basically if he was above 5'6, you wouldn't have asked. Because of his height, he's not given much of a chance to make it and is pretty much the reason people don't now as much about him.

Having said that, I would say, if he had a little more hight, he'd be a top two line center, no problem (in my opinion of course), but I don't think he'll be anything more than a very good AHLer, as I don't think he's strong enough to move up. Hell of a warrior though and I wouldn't be the first guy he's proved wrong, if he makes it!

Solid depth signing, glad he took the offer. maybe to break some more records next year?
its his last year before he clears waivers, we'll see a carreer year coming up out of this kid.
not sure if he cracks out lineup but he will make it somewhere.

Nice to see him signed. He should have a big year in Hamilton.

Mehhh... AHL bound.... At 5'7, I don't think he'll make it to the NHL... And no he is not a future Martin St-Louis.

It's always good to have some ''veterans'' for the bulldogs though...
