pretty sure Desjardins was amazing in his stint in the AHL. It's similar to Gomez. They had two guys paid a good sum of money. I doubt Tampa would bury contacts either.

He wasn't a #1 prospect but considering he wins at every level.. He's not a bad one. Kid will be good. No doubt in my mind.

This is not trolling, if you want proof go look up the Trade Thread

Why's that? Because French people outside of Quebec are basically quebecois? I'm from Edmundston, and let me tell you one thing, it's not basically QC...

And having a young back-up isn't a good thing in Montreal. The young guy will want to be a starter and will not be happy for long. The older guy, like Auld, knows his role better and will just be happy to be there...

So I assume we draft a goalie this year somewhere after the 3rd round.

You know I ask myself why we bother wasting a pick when all we need is back-up G capable of playing 15-20 games a season? Thatís something Habs are able to find in unrestricted free agency.
Considering obviously CP31 sticks around for another 10-15 years...

Now that you mention it, who is the Nailer's backup? Damn, someone get him up on screen. We need to analyze this guy. I want a full report on my desk at 6 AM guys.

Joking aside, just because we have Carey in net, Habs can't slack on Goalie development. A lot of **** can happen.

And, I'm a bit pissed re Ramo too. He could have bought us a second rounder I think. Now he's bedding Russian prossies and having a fine old time. Bummer.

KHL, party players heaven.

Very true. I'd be surprised if they spent a draft pick to choose and try to develop a suitable back up as opposed to choosing from known ("tried and tested") NHL free agent options. You never know, though. At some point, if a certain goalie drops and drops, you can get faced with a tough decision; especially if your drafting strategy highly prioritizes some notion of BPA value.

They certainly seemed to say that loud and clear, didn't they. Don't see why it would be any different for the next few years.

Yeah that was bad **** for Nashville. Radulov. Also enjoying caviar, champagne and babe Prossies I guess. Some Russian guys are just like that. Can't blame them really.

With UFA status at 27 years old in the new CBA, I thought you'd see more quality goaltenders hit the market in their prime. But the result was different, teams chose to lock up their undisputed #1 goalies to 5-6-7 year contracts. Now all you have in terms of goaltenders option are #1a #1b, backups or reclamation projects.

I'm the third guy to tell you your post is: WRONG! After his great year, KR could of landed us a second round pick if he was keen on the NHL. Now that he's eating Caviar and drinking Champers in Russia the next 2 years, he'll land us a 7th round pick at best. The um, point of this entire thread by the way: KHL 1, HABS 0. Again.

I meant more on the proximity to the border not the language issue....

He's going to be 26 before the start of next year, hardly a kid. He's two years older than Price. Plus .905 save % in the AHL is nothing to write home about. If we miss him so much we can re-sign him after July 1st as he is going to be a UFA I believe.

I think its a pretty interesting stragety. By the time his contract will be up, he'll be 27 and in the midst of his prime. By looking at his numbers this year 33-6, he could blossom into a legit number 1 goalie. I don't believe he'll ever play a game as a hab, but could devolp into a decent trading piece. Its always good to have options.
