Chris Bourque is back

http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...762/story.html

Welcome back Chris.

I wonder if he will make the team this time or be in the AHL again? He does have a wicked slapper that is accurate that he unloads coming over the blue line. He also did well on the Bear's power play.

He'll play for the Bears and be an emergency call-up. He'll be given a shot in training camp, but he's going to have plenty of competition from Sjogren, Beagle, King, Eakin, and Hendricks.

With that said the ceiling is pretty high for Hershey if none of the young guys make it on the final roster (which I would really be surprised to see).

Eakin, Orlov, Sjogren, Beagle, Galiev, McNeil, Mathieu, Gordon. Only uncertainty in Hershey is the goalie situation as it seems that it's still to early for guys like Soberg and Grubauer, and even then both of them are a far cry from guys like Varly, Nuevy, and Holtby.

Galiev is too young for the AHL.
A.Gordon signed with Anaheim.

19 is to young for the AHL? Is it because he's coming out of the CHL?

Gordon is now officially dead to me. Did that kiss of MaJo mean NOTHING TO HIM. What a traitor.

Yes. The CHL and AHL have an agreement that players coming out of the CHL cannot play in the AHL unless they are 20 by December 31st of that season. Galiev is 19 until January 22nd, so he misses the cut-off. If he's not on the Capitals, he'd be playing an overage season with St. John.

Can't really blame the kid. He wasn't going to get a shot at the NHL here, so he went somewhere else hoping he could.

Caps held his rights; if they didn't trade him and he came back, this was the way.

As to Gordon, he's UFA, chose another opportunity and all signs pointed to him doing that...good luck to him and another reason I hope he makes Anaheim's roster is that Anaheim's AHL affiliate, Syracuse, is in the same division as Hershey.

Galiev won't be playing his overage season. Overagers are the ones who don't have to go back to the CHL per the NHL/AHL rules...next season, the CHL overages will be '91s.

Bourque is a world class example of how dominant genes don't always get passed down.

Having said that, finally the cup will be ours. Between him and Sjogren, this is a scary team!
