What happened to Brendon Nash?

Remember we signed Brendon Nash earlier this year?

Where is this guy, he's a 23 year old 6'3'' 205 pound defenseman that can really help at this point and maybe crack the team considering his years at Cornell.

Shouldn't he be at camp right now?

Quote:
Talent Analysis

Nash is a smart, offensive-minded defenseman who possesses a nice combination of size, mobility and puck skills. He uses his 6'3 frame and long reach to great advantage, particularly in protecting or stripping the puck. He's also not afraid to join the offensive play. Defensively, he is solid and keeps things pretty simple. Nash has great poise and patience with the puck, but what sets him apart from many young defensemen is in his timely passing ability, particularly on power plays. Though he skates quite well for a big man, Nash needs to work on having quicker feet. Developing speed and strength are two areas that will be paramount to his future success.
I want to see a Nash-Tinordi tandem in a few years!

I'm pretty sure he is at camp. I vaguely recall someone saying he was playing well too.

The reports were: good in his own zone, good puck possessions and very good first pass.

Thank you guy's, just imagine the following defense core in a few years:

Subban, Weber, Tinordi, Nash, Bennett and Yemelin

Nash won't make the team you freak, there's a reason why he was an undrafted Free Agent.

Now maybe a prospect can take the spot of a UFA but it's crazy to think we will have a defensive core of only players we developed

no spot for Gorges and Obyrn ? ( I would like the habs to let Gorges go, but i don't think it will happen)

Markov-UFA
Tinordi-Subban
Gorges-UFA
Obyrn

Or this wtv, what i was saying is there's no way we're icing a defensive core out of only players we developed.

If Tinordi pans out, it could be close:
Markov - Subban
UFA - Gorges (no one trades Captain Kelowna; the Habs didn't develop him, but 4 guys on the team would still be pretty impressive)
Tinordi - O'Byrne (I'm a believer)

Edit: Some guys here obviously read and type faster than I do...

I could see a

Markov-Subban
Tinordi - Weber
Gorges - O'Byrne

Everybody playing at their natural position.

I'd find a spot for Emelin if he ever was to come to North-America, i was impressed by his numbers in Russia.

The difference between Gorges and Nash is that Gorges was 20 years old when the Sharks gave him a contract, Nash is 23 years old. Gorges showed leadership and was the captain of his Junior team and participated to the World Juniors, something Nash has never done. I might eat crow on this one, which I highly doubt, I don't think Nash will ever have an impact on our team beside a few games in the NHL if we get many injuries to our defense. I'm not a pessimist poster on these boards but sometimes people are a bit too optimistic about players who are pretty low on our depth chart.

Let him play in the AHL. There's always the possibility he may be good enough to get NHL time. Think Matt Gilroy and Tyler Bozak.

That would end up being a very ugly defense. I bet only Subban and hopefully Tinordi will ever end up making an impact for the Habs. Two out of those six would be a decent success rate.

The name Tyler Bozak mean anything to you?

I know it doesn't mean Nash will succeed, but his age has nothing to do with his skill level. Maybe he was a late bloomer. Who cares? Fact is he's an intriguing player to have in the system.

It would be awesome if Nash made it but realistically we shouldn't expect him to suit up for more than a few games in case of injury. In the next few years of course, because right now he's behind at least Carle, Weber, Picard and Henry. Sure he might be a late boomer and become a star but he's not shown anything to prove he can be (not anymore than all the random undrafted free agent signings done by all teams every year).

Still, good luck to him. I hope that if he ever makes the team it won't be because we cruelly lack depth at that time but because he proved himself. I'm sure he was signed to play in the AHL/ECHL a few years then they'll drop him for another guy. If he does good they'll keep him around for depth (a la Andre Benoit or Marvin Degon)

That would be quite a defence one day, if Tinordi and Weber can reach their potential and O'Byrne can gain more confidence and consistency.

By the way, anybody else think Weber can become similar to a player such as Tobias Enstrom?
