Habs invite 50 players to development camp

The Canadiens announced on Thursday that they have invited 50 players to their development camp to be held July 7-11 at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard.

Five of the six players selected at this year’s NHL draft will be in attendance, including first-round pick Nikita Scherbak (photo above). Twenty of the players invited to the camp are prospects who have been drafted by the Habs.

The first on-ice sessions will be on Monday, July 7, from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. on both ice surfaces in Brossard. Practices will be held in the morning for the remainder of the week, followed by scrimmages at the end of the day.

All practices will be open to the public.

Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin also announced on Thursday that he has signed forward T.J. Hensick to a one-year AHL contract with the Hamilton Bulldogs. The 28-year-old, who is 5-foot-9 and 170 pounds, split last season between the AHL’s Hartford Wolfpack and MODO in the Swedish league. In 42 games with Hartford, he posted 11-23-34 totals.

    This whole thing with Giroux serves as a reminder of what can happen when you mix together your working life and your leisure time. In his case he got into trouble with the law simply by being forward on Canada Day and now has become the centre of attention.
    (Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe this all happened at Ottawa’s Wayward Market.)

        Incidents involving athletes behaving badly often rear their ugly head during the off-season. It’s very off-putting.

      I lived in the heart of Wayward (Byward) Market) at the Hotel Richelieu on York Street from 1969-1970. Fifteen dollars a week, with maid service. A tavern downstairs, with ladies & escorts on the other side of the beer counter. Country & Western music provided by Phil and Rocky. Their signature tune was ‘Together Again’.

    Anyone know what happened to Del Zotto? Think Habs should sign him for depth or just give ice time to Tinordi/Beaulieu?

    • GrosBill says:

      Hard to believe during the time Subban was negotiating his bridge contract, Del Zotto’s contract was the one many media outlets and people on here compared him to.

      Doubt we see that comparison again this summer.

      Make a group page and ask all the other Habs Groups to help you by posting a link on their page. It might take off it might not. :) GL I already posted the link on my wall a little wile ago and got a couple hits. Hope you have a good day.

    I’ve stayed up too late and now I’ll probably sleep in tomorrow and be rushed when I do wake up.
    Question: Do I really need to shampoo before using conditioner? There’s nothing wrong with going straight to conditioner is there?
    Do I even need conditioner? Why can’t I just shampoo and leave it at that? Does conditioner really do a lot for your hair? And what happens when overweight people use up all their conditioner, do other people say they’re out of condition …ner? Like pause at the end, right, and then add that last little bit. Would they do that?

      If Habs had a goon, you wouldn’t have to ask such questions, he would have your back no matter what you do.

      • JohnBellyful says:

        But if the Canadiens had a goon would he be referred to as la goon? Or le goon? I think it would be la goon. Le goon sounds like legume which makes you think of BGL, which brings up a lot of bad memories, so you wouldn’t want to do that. So la goon it is. You know who would make a good la goon? Swamp Thing! He wouldn’t need to skate fast. The trail he’d leave behind would soon bog up the lanes. Another thing hezzzzzzzz

  8. habs_54321 says:

    i dont really follow the nba other than watching a few playoff games, but have noticed the craziness happening in miami, anyone know the full story here???? i’ve never heard of players just quitting on the team like this especially after very recent championships???

    • HabinBurlington says:

      Hard to say, some rumours have them opting out in order to redo contracts such that they can add other players to help win. Or indeed they are exercising their opt outs to get more money elsewhere. Time will tell. But, they were given opt out clauses, so technically not quitting. Optics aren’t good for those of us who are old fashioned in regards to pro sports.

    • HabFan in Edmonton says:

      According to stories on TSN Lebron was talking to Cleveland today, maybe he is just getting tired of those ugly winters in Miami.

  10. Habitant in Surrey says:

    Something to cause Mdme. Marois et Jacques Parizeau to asphyxiate.

    Which is WHY ??? I’m copying here :)

    The Gazette: : ‘Eugenie Bouchard, the Canadian sensation of the tennis court, has some interesting connections with the royal court — she is named after one of the Queen’s granddaughters. And many in the British media are already calling her the Queen of Wimbledon.

    “Bouchard grew up in an English-speaking neighbourhood of Montreal. She and her siblings — Beatrice, Charlotte and William — were named for British royalty. Their mother, Julie, Bouchard joked, is a ‘closet royalist,’ ” reported the New York Times. “Eugenie and Beatrice are twins, named for the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York. That tidbit was received well by the British news media.”

    Princess Eugenie of York was named after Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, a former Queen of Spain and a granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

    (Though, there is some dispute about whether Bouchard’s sister is named after Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz or Charlotte Casiraghi, fifth in line to the throne of Monaco — but that’s another story.) ‘

      Those teams all have guys that can fight the big guys…Bollig, Brookbank in Chi,Kyle Clifford, Jordan Nolan…Rangers just went and signed Tarnasky from Habs, they have Derek Dorsett, Carcillo

      Also the two leading teams in the NHL were tow hbas sivisional rivals in Tor and Boston…two teams notorious for injuring Canadiens and ruining seasons…you prefer to give them free run 6 times a year?
      The bottom line is that as long as there are teams out there with these guys you need them too….they don’t need to dress every game, we all know they won’t see the playoffs, preferabey you get guys who can play significant minutes and handle this stuff….but those guys are rare

      OMG if you read most of the posts, most posters on here say team toughness is the way to go. Montreal has not got enough team toughness. Other teams are going to take full advantage. not many people are “pro goon” or pro “enforcer” Most people would like another forward who is tough and can also play a regular shift

  18. third generation haber says:

    For those of u who don’t want an enforcer in our line-up, it will be open-season on all of our skilled guys because the rats of the league won’t have much retribution to fear. Watch the following video and then tell me how u feel about us not having an enforcer:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9SFgPqFMWI

    Bourque got a concussion, Gionta nearly got killed, and Gorges had little choice but to fight McClaren. This is bullzhit!

    Pacioretty, Eller, and I don’t want Galchenyuk to be the next hab taken off the ice on a stretcher.

    This year, simply having Parros in our line-up meant that no one was seriously injured. The enforcer doesn’t need to play every game, but against the A-hole teams of the league (Toronto, Boston, Philly) they are a must.

    When we have injuries we can call-up forwards while the enforcer remains the extra forward.

    j.p. murray

    • HabFan in Edmonton says:

      Totally agree with all your points. These teams will take liberties with the Habs if they don’t have a physical presence, no doubt about it.

  19. toinz says:

    I hope that someone offer sheets Torey Krug and Reilly Smith.

    Anything up until 3.3 million requires only a second round pick in return, and most teams would happily trade a 2nd rounder for either of those 2.

    Boston has 5.6 million of cap space and has those two plus Caron, Bartkowski and a 12th forward to sign. Someone should force Chiarelli’s hand, and losing Smith would leave a gaping hole on Boston’s top line. Many expect him to take over Jarome Iginla’s spot on the right side of the Krejci Lucic line.

    Wouldn’t it be great if Dallas offer sheets Smith and gets him back!? It would make the Seguin trade that much more lop-sided!

    • kempie says:

      I would trade a 2nd for Smith in a heartbeat.

  20. ProHabs says:

    Habs need need to sign a goon. I would even be OK with them bringing in a goon and Douglas Murray back. The games never got out of hand this year with Murray and Parros in the lineup. It was a thing of beauty.

    • HardHabits says:

      Did you just read what you said?

      Parros played like 3 shifts all season. He fell flat on his face in the first game and got concussed. He was a non factor.

      Murray had one fight and lost it.

      Geezus get a grip dude.

      • ProHabs says:

        Murray lost to BIg John Scott at the end of a shift. Guys in the NHL were not lining up to take on Murray. As soon as he skated into a scrum, the scrum stopped pronto.

        • HardHabits says:

          I liked Murray for his immense size and for his grit. Without a doubt his presence was felt when he was on the ice.

          But he wasn’t a goon or an enforcer. He was a big body. Parros was the goon/enforcer.

          Murray is another odd man out defenceman with youth movement, who BTW add some decent size on the back end:

          JARRED TINORDI
          HEIGHT: 6′ 6″
          WEIGHT: 227

          NATHAN BEAULIEU
          HEIGHT: 6′ 2″
          WEIGHT: 194

          GREG PATERYN
          HEIGHT: 6′ 2″
          WEIGHT: 222

          So no goons or enforcers.

          • Luke says:

            As much as I like Murray, and I was in favour of the signing, he wasn’t up to snuff hockey wise.

    • punkster says:

      Parros provided zero deterrence after that embarrassing staged tragedy in the first game of the season. His other “fights” were all staged events having no impact on the games.

      Murray fought once at the end of November, was owned, and never fought again until April.

      You cannot possibly say that either of these guys had any impact on anything.

      Release the Subbang!!!

      • marvin20 says:

        I remember shawn thortan was looking for trouble near the end of game 3 his saw Murray and was quiet as a church mouse. you can’t ignore the fact that when they were in the lineup not much happened. Because teams knew their would be a consequence.

  21. Feraco says:

    Having an enforcer prevents Prust, Tinordi or whoever else will drop the gloves takes those fights away from those useful position players.

    When Orr lines up to fight, do you want him fighting Prust or Parros?

    Thus allowing Moen Prust white wherever to fight someone better in their weight call.

    So let’s sign us some big boys

    • ProHabs says:

      Exactly. Without a goon, guys start fighting other out of their weight and ability class. That is when guys get hurt, concussed, knocked out. We don’t want to see that on the Habs. Tinordi, Prust, MOen should not have to fight Jay Rosehill, or Colton Orr.

    • PK says:

      Last thing we need is Tinordi getting in over his head .. all in the name of making it onto the Habs …. taking on a goon … then leaving hockey in a concussed state …

      MB: Get a Rosehill

  24. DipsyDoodler says:

    Thinking outside the box here, why does the enforcer have to even be a member of the on ice roster? That takes up a spot and uses up cap space.

    Why not have the enforcer(s) visit the opposing team in their hotel after the game to settle scores?

    —–
    Moving. Forward.

    • Mad Habber says:

      This would be a better idea but is it legal?

    • Chwinsy says:

      maybe there should be a ‘challenge ticket’ system. Within this system it is illegal to fight during any 20min period, but you can issue a ‘challenge ticket’ against an opposing player during the period (or perhaps against the opposing team).

      If accepted, you square off during intermission at center ice (no more need for intermission filler shows). The player accepting can either fight for themselves, or select a ‘champion’ (game of thrones is on in the other room, but more practically it would help to mitigate other players challenging the stars on the other team without cause).

      There is room to expand on the idea…..fractions of points awarded to the team for winning a ticket? fraction of a point lost for not accepting? Limit to the number of challenges per game? maybe a challenge per malicious penalty (introduce yellow cards? (Go France!) your team gets 1 challenge ticket per yellow card against the opposing team)

    We didn’t have an enforcer this past season yet iced arguably the best team we’ve seen in 20 years.

    Sure, Parros was hired to do the job but played a total of 96 minutes over his 22 games and picked up 85 minutes in penalties over that time.

    How did this deter anything?

    Seriously folks, what’s the point?

    Release the Subbang!!!

  27. ProHabs says:

    Does Stephan Fournier have a chance or is he a career minor leaguer.

  28. Mr_MacDougall says:

    So much talk about little tweaks… The majority of championships in all team sports are won on the backs of a core of elite talent, in hockey it generally takes 4-5 elite players to win a championship. Role players get far too much attention, sure they get series changing goals but the elite talent carries a team consistently. Look at the Kings, Hawks, Pens (when they won) Datsyuk Wings, Yzerman Wings, Lemieux Pens, Sakic Avs, Modano Stars, Pronger Ducks….. Without taking the time to type out all the names, all the listed championship teams had two all-star centres, an all star scoring winger (or two) , two all-star D (typically paired together, and an all star goaltender.

    My assessment is the Habs have the goaltender in Price and the top D in Markov and Subban (have to get them paired together) and the scoring winger in Patch. The weakness is at centre, Plek is our best C by a distinct margin, that tells a lot. Sure Eller has potential, but not All star potential. I’ll not bother commenting on DD, would love him as a 4th line C (only if on a line with a PK center and winger).

    It is my belief that the strategy should alway be to reduce term and add dollars, the Max yearly salary is 14 million, in theory I’d rather pay Sydney 10-12 million per for 4 years rather than 8-9 million for 7-8 years… Better for both parties IMO. The biggest waste of cap space is on mediocre players, we saw that with Gionta and Briere compared to Weiss, Eller, Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Bourque in the playoffs…

    I like what the Habs and Kings tried with Vanek and Gaborik. They picked up guys at the deadline to give them a “pro-tryout” … Vanek failed, Gaborik was awesome.

    So where are the Habs? I think they’re an all-star Center and winger away from being a heavyweight contenders.. If the Habs were to add Joe Thornton and Alex Galchenyuk exploded the Habs would be lethal… That’s a hypothetical of course, but you get what I’m saying…

    MB needs to stay patient, very very very patient, go with what we have and don’t just get a guy long term for the sake of doing it (David Clarkson anyone, much rather Briere or PA on two year deals, risk free) .. I really think the best strategy is trading for a UFA player or one with 1 year remaining and try to resign if he works out, that’s why Spezza would have been interesting, Joe Thornton and E Stall become very interesting. I’m not sure who else might be available, but paying a package of mid range players is always worth the risk on a star, and the lower the contract the lower the Price.

    ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    • Loop_Garoo says:

      ok, that is sometimes true, and I do agree with most of what you said, but most of our recent cup winners such as Boston and LA, have won because they have solid line ups from top to bottom. Yes they have a couple of stars, but there are 10-12 teams in the league that match your list, and only 4 or 5 of those are contenders. Pittsburgh and Washington, San Jose, have both proven how you need the entire team, not just the stars. ( yes I realize the goaltending issues there but believe my point still stands, Pittsburgh with a good goalie, still less scary than LA, Chicago, or Boston, by a long shot.)

      • Mr_MacDougall says:

        When Boston won Tim Thomas had the single greatest playoff performance by a goaltender in NHL history… San Jose never had a true dual all-star D pairing or goaltending (look at all their playoff exits more closely and you’ll see they were grossly out tended in those losses) and Washington had neither goaltending or D… Pittsburg doesn’t have D (Letang health issues and regression) and their goaltending is an absolute mess. They absolutely do not match my criteria.

        I’m not saying that assembling a core 5 is all it takes, of course assembling the rest of the team is important, what I’m saying is without the G, 2D, 2C and scoring winger a team can’t be a perennial contender. The Habs have the Goaltender, D, winger.. Maybe the 2nd C… Add an all star C and they are set..

        ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

        • Loop_Garoo says:

          When Boston won Tim Thomas played well, no where close to the greatest ever, Roy, Brodeur, Quick last time the Kings won, and Boston is a perfect example of what I mean, one dominant d man, few stars, just a solid top to bottom roster. There is more than one way to win, your list would absolutely be the ideal situation, but without an above avg supporting cast, a team is very vulnerable

          • Mr_MacDougall says:

            There is more than one way to win, but I just looked at the playoff stats of playoff champions over the past 20 seasons and all but NJ and Bos fit the “recipe” … This is more than a trend, it is a formula.. All teams also have a player that rises to a star level (like Bourque for the Habs this year) …. Seriously, what better way to understand what’s needed to win a championship than looking at championship teams!

    A lot of talk on here today about our need for an enforcer. I wouldn’t mind picking up a heavyweight that we can throw into the lineup as needed. I do however think people on here are seriously underestimating Tinordi’s fighting abilities. Yes I know we don’t want him to be an “enforcer”, however the dude is one nasty customer and not even a full time nhler yet.

    His first 2 fights last year he concussed Gleason and broke Carter Ashton’s nose. He’s now got a full summer to workout and get even stronger. Not many dudes are gunna want to tussle with this guy. Of course I wouldn’t want him fighting John Scott or McGratton but he is a big dude.

    Another thing worth mentioning is he’s apparently training with McCarron everyday over the summer. Hopefully he gives the kid some tips. With those two in the lineup a few years from now, along with Crisp and possibly Nevins… Yep that’s a pretty scary thought for other teams.

    • marvin20 says:

      I agree the Habs are on the right track, but they lack toughness up front. Then need to provide some insulation for their skilled forwards. I’m not a big fan of having an “enforcer” but at this moment they do not have enough team toughness. We will find out very fast when the season starts.

      • Mr_MacDougall says:

        Toughness lol

        Your ranking of toughness is skewed by the amount of former pluggers in the media. Game Breakers win championships, plain and simple.

          That is so true Mr. MacDougall

        • CJ says:

          Good evening lads. Just to clarify, what’s the definition of a game breaker? Goal scorer? If so, let me counter that two of the lowest scoring teams in the league played in the finals. Clutch players are needed. In this sense, Williams was more valuable then Crosby this postseason.

          I do agree that the media is filled with has beens and never were types. That said, IMO, you need balance to win. You need guys with size and skill. You need guys who can sustain a forecheck, make a good first pass, and play a disciplined game within the system. If this is the definition of game breakers, then I fully agree.

          • Mr_MacDougall says:

            Game Breaker: a player that has tendencies to make game changing plays consistently in successive games and can typically be found among the games 3 stars when their team wins.

            LA playoff scoring leader were Kopitar, Williams, Carter Gaborik, and Doughty.. Add Quick as a game breaker..

            ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

          • CJ says:

            I really liked what Pearson and Toffoli brought to the lineup. Quick, IMO, was not above average, in fact he struggled at times, but behind that defence he didn’t need to be excellent.

            LA just wore teams out. To be able to go through two series like they did against the Sharks and Ducks that were so physical, it’s amazing that had something left. We got through Boston and looked gassed. LA actually looked like they were getting stronger. Again, that’s the model.

            Last note, when Lombardi took over he had 11 players who were under 6 feet. Now he has one – Mike Richards. We are heading in the same direction. We just need to remain patient.

          • Mr_MacDougall says:

            Quick was timely… He was one of the games top 2 stars in 4 straight wins VS San Jose.. I watched most of that series, he was definitely series MVP, but yeah, he had so e bad games for sure… The team played so great he didn’t have to be heroic, other than against SJ and times against Chi..

    If you’re tough enough to make it to the playoffs the Goons usually go away if they want to advance to the next round ask boston what happened against the Habs when they were in the penality box for half of the series.

    4. Alex Galchenyuk can’t progress until he’s moved to centre!
    5. Louis Leblanc was a waste of a draft pick…dump him already!
    6. Andrei Markov is too old and was responsible for the team losing in the playoffs!
    7. P.K. Subban should be the next captain of the Montreal Canadiens because he rides unicorns to the rink and rainbows follow him wherever he skates!
    8. P.K. Subban should not be the next captain of the Montreal Canadiens because his teammates hate him!
    9. Daniel Briere is a waste of space, and he’s only on the team because he’s French-Canadian!
    10. We need an enforcer because you can’t play hockey without fighting!
    11. Carey Price can’t win under pressure!
    12. Lars Eller will become a 70 point scorer if he gets to play David Desharnais’ minutes!
    13. Jarred Tinordi and Nathan Beaulieu have nothing more to learn in the AHL, so they MUST be in Montreal this season!

    Keep it up guys…Marc Bergevin is clearly reading! You have a 50% chance of striking either 7 or 8 from the list, too.

      Get some moving RH dman…check
      manage the cap better and move Gorges to let kids play…check
      Get RW to replace Gionta who is younger and bigger…check

      He will still get a tough guy….ideally a two way contract but there is no surviving the reg season with a lineup that has Subban, Emelin, Gallagher,etc it in without one or two of these guys….Habs are perceived as an annoying team….Weise is going to have to drop them with Lucic withoutan enforcer first game….in case you don’t remember he ended the season with a concussion….Moen had one too….that leaves Prust and his wonky shoulders to try and wrestle one of the strongest guys in the league…. Or…we could have Tinordi do it…maybe he can get Komsiareked and have wonky shoulders too?

      Re Galchenyuk….he palys LW or center….unless the plan is to move Paciroetty he isn’t going to see the top minutes/situations at LW anytime soon. The center spot is wide open….perhaps instead they should go with Chucky-Eller-PA and give them the pp’s, the 4th line match ups, the icings, the.

      As far as 70 points goes…..DD topped out at 60….in 3 seasons in his prime years with the leagues 4th best goalscorer and two of the best pp dmen in the NHL….not exactly great numbers.

      Markov is not too old or too slow….one year too many but with no Gorges the contract is manageable..Markov is also smart enough to know his new limitations and would make ideal PK partner….love the Markov

      Beaulieu and Tinordi should both be with the club …maybe not full time but they are done in the AHL IMO other than for cap purposes. THey will spend most of the season with the big club…or will be given a chance to prove they deserve to in camp anyway…the rest is up to them.

      I think Habs mishandled Leblanc….should be an NHL player.

      Carey Price….is a great goalie….will miss Gorges blocking shots at times but will not miss Gorges lying on him, screening him or deflecting pucks in.

      Subban to me …I would not pay 8.5 because he is not as good as the guys getting less and on competitive teams….I ama huge PK Subban fan but if he wants a ridiculous amount of money…trade him. If the Hawks go out and spend 10 million on Kane and Toews they will never win again….they won because they are elite players but only made 6 and Keith made5.5 so they have depth…can afford Sharp, Hossa,etc too …LA same model…several stars but no one of them totally breaking the bank like Ovie or malk/Crosby…how Malkin makes nearly a million more than Sid I will never know…not sure how Pitts lets that happen

    I am in the anti-enforcer camp, intuitively.
    However, I hate to see our Habs getting run into the ground by the likes of Boston, Toronto and what about that pathetic Sens series?

    We should probably get a guy that can take on the worst of our Eastern Conference opponents. Don’t want the likes of Gallagher trying to stand up to a Bruin if Chucky or Sekac are being targeted.

    Sorry to bring up the name, I think it was Gomez that was yelling at/challenging Chara after Patches was decapitated.

    We need players who are strong and will stand up for one another but who are on the team to play a regular shift.
    We don’t need a meat-head taking a roster spot to warm the bench and waltz with some other goon for 12 seconds before sitting in the penalty box.

    Dollars to doughnuts that Bergevin doesn’t sign a mouth-breather before the season begins.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

    • CJ says:

      I don’t blame anyone for being turned off having had most recently been subjected to the likes of Parros and BGL. These guys were well past their best before date when we acquired them, and injuries and mental blocks only exasperated the situation. I have a very difficult time labelling either as an enforcer, the same as Nilan or Probert. It’s the equivalent of calling both Gretzky and Rob Brown prolific goal scores. I would NOT be in favor of having this type of player on the 23 man roster. I would however welcome a young guy who can play the game, skate, hit and sustain a forecheck. As I said earlier, so much as it pains me, a guy like Chris Neil circa 2006-2012 fits the description. We have this type of player in the pipeline, but they are still anywhere from 1-5 years away. In the interim, I’d have no issue adding Anthony Peluso, or Front’s guy Jay Rosehill. I consider LA to be the model, so someone like Kyle Clifford or Jordan Nolan who can play, but also address issues physically, would be ideal. Who in our current lineup fits that description? Prust? Sure, for two months before he’s hurt. Tinordi? Close, but not yet ready.

      Look, I love the team toughness analogy, but we don’t have a tough team. Not even close. We will, but, as noted above, it’s 1-5 years away. So, as insurance, why so dead set against Peluso, Rosehill or this type of addition?

      • Hobie says:

        100% correct CJ.

        Bergevin knows what he’s doing. He oversaw the drafting of Crisp, McCarron and most recently Learnout. He signed Prust and took a gamble that didn’t exactly pan out with Parros and Murray.

        All the guys whining about fights, or that we don’t need enforcers, they better enjoy it while they can because like you said, over the next 1-5 years the Habs are bringing in some tough customers they drafted.

        We’re on the right track and might have to settle for being pushed around a bit this year but at least we’re not as laughable as two or three years ago when Moen was left alone. That was an embarrassment!

        We should hang in there with Prust, Moen (hopefully), Tinordi and Weise this year.

        • kevin says:

          in respect, the game is supposed to be played with hockey sticks and not fists. nobody likes a fight more than I do but we do have the players to man up and play whatever game we need to play. I would suggest that you look no farther past than the Bruins series………..were we intimidated? Were we pushed around? The Bruins are the classic Goon team and we beat them. We will again without the “muscle” some of you think we need. We have that muscle…………it may be inside the cranium and inside the heart, but we have it.

          • marvin20 says:

            Time will tell if the Habs are tough enough. I think they are on the right track, building team toughness. But at this moment they do not have enough team toughness. Many people saying they are fine the way they are, will be singing a different tune, once the injuries, and cheap shots begin piling up.

          • CJ says:

            Hi Kevin. You make some very good points. I’m not a fan of staged fighting in the NHL, but I do like fights and have respect for fighters plying their trade. Setting that aside for a second, let me ask you this; do you think Montreal can compete, physically, with LA? I’m not even talking about fighting. I don’t think anyone, at least that I’ve read, is agitating for John Scott, Colton Orr, Matt Kassian or the likes. These guys are dinosaurs. I’d be embarrassed to have them on the team. I don’t want to get hung up on technicalities, but it’s unfair to lump Peluso into the same category as Colton Orr.

            Let me leave you with this. Montreal played in Ottawa last year. After falling down 0-3, the Habs rallied with 7 goals. The last ten minutes started to get chippy, with Smith, Neil and Gryba running around. Therien put Parros on the ice, who lined up beside Smith and whispered in his ear. That was it. Nothing else happened. It’s not always necessary to fight, but sometimes the deterrent helps to keep guys honest.

            What’s a play like that worth? What would have happened if Parros wasn’t there? Look, I’m no fool. Parros was a shell of his former self. But, without someone like that in the lineup, we need to be prepared for other teams to lean on our players. Weise doesn’t like to fight, Prust can’t help himself and will be hurt again, Moen is one punch away from retirement and Tinordi needs to develop his overall game which is easier to do while playing as opposed to sitting in the box.

            So, what’s the answer? IMO, flip Moen for Peluso and have a nice day. Save the cap space, and add a young kid who can bridge the role until Nevins, Crisp and/ or MacCarron come up.

            Just my two cents…. Cheers, CJ

        It’s not being turned off by the enforcers we have had. It’s the idea that to be a man you have to fight when someone hurts your feelings while playing a game.

            I watched every game this season. I can honestly say that if Moen never played a minute on the PK again, nobody would notice. He didn’t play on the PK in the playoffs, and neither would Peluso. Peluso is a better skater, better hitter, better fighter, is not one punch away from retirement and costs 75% less then Moen, who by the way, is signed for TWO more years.

            It’s nothing personnel against Travis, but can we afford to pay our 13th forward almost $2 million? I’d rather see Peluso sit in the press box for $525k. Do you think Moen is in our top 12? Do you think he’s on our first wave of PK at this stage of his career?

    with the signings of Subban and Eller to come over the next period, I expect MB to make no further moves unless it involves the swap of a current player or two, eg Budaj to solve the Tokarski problem.

    RE: THE POLL…

    I’d just like to point out, to the 24 people who have clicked ‘other’ because they want Carey Price to be captain, that a goalie can’t be captain.

    Luongo tried, and the league said “NO!” so he handed back the ‘C’.

    That is all.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

    • CJ says:

      Let me preface this comment by saying I don’t want Price to be awarded the Captaincy. He’s our leader. The players know it. A letter sewn to his jersey is not required to prove it.

      That said, your comment regarding Luongo is inaccurate. The league didn’t mandate that he give up the Captaincy. It was Luongo’s choice. It was a distraction (go figure).

      • Mattyleg says:

        I agree, Price is looked up to by most on the team, and doesn’t need a ‘C’ for that.

        As for Luongo, the league didn’t take it away from him, but because a goalie is not allowed to assume a Captain’s duties on the ice, him being the Captain but also needing to have a player wearing a ‘C’ on the ice during games caused problems and distractions.

        Being a Captain but not being able to wear the ‘C’ is more or less the league telling you it can’t be done! :)

        —Hope Springs Eternal—

        • CJ says:

          I’m aware of the rule (thank you Google). On first blush it seemed to suggest that the league took away the captaincy, as appointed by AV and Nonnis, which wasn’t the case. I don’t know what they were thinking. Oh Vancouver……

      HH, I agree with you that Moen and Budaj have to go. I’m afraid it won’t be easy to shed their salaries. I suggested we trade Moen and a 2016 2nd to Chicago for Versteeg and Danault. This gives Chicago some more cap room, which they desperately need. It also gives us a RW who can play on the 3rd line (assuming PAP and Gally are top-6).

    • on2ndthought says:

      which they need for Chucky, Gally, Tiny and Beaulieu next year

      • Loop_Garoo says:

        Yes, hopefully the cap will have a big jump with the new TV revenues, but I think by the start of next season at least one or two current players will have to go. Budaj is likely gone, or will be picked up on waivers, I can see a young team like Edmonton wanting Moen’s leadership, and since he is from the west, maybe he goes there for a 4th. Also, likely Weaver won’t be back next year either. Between those 3, it is about 5 million freed up. Tinordi will get a small contract, maybe 1.2 mill for two or three years, its Gally and Chucky with bigger raises, maybe Beaulieu if he plays really well.

      In my humble opinion and I say that seriously, because of the knowledgable posters on here, almost afraid to say anything, but toughness is a team thing. With Tinordi in the lineup on a regular basis, we don’t have to worry about thoughness. The best deterrent to players taking liberties at our players is an effective power play. The day of the “hired gun” should be over, we need a few guys that can drop them, but also play a regular shift. We’ll get them, likely already have them. just be patient.

        I hope in time Tinordi becomes the guy that no one wants to mess with like Robinson. He just had to make his presence felt and things would calm down. Murray had that to some extent last year. But until Tinordi lays a beating on a guy like Lucic he wont have that luxury.
        IMO the Habs need an enforcer in the lineup for most games and will need to get one via trade.

  45. 24 Cups says:

    A cut and paste from TSN.

    The Canadiens Sign: RW Jiri Sekac.

    “Twenty-two-year-old Jiri Sekac was suddenly a hot name on the free agent market this spring after a nice season in the KHL, scoring 11 goals and 28 points in 47 games for Prague Lev, leading his team in points per game (0.60).

    As a junior, Sekac played a little in North America, earning zero points in eight games with the Peterborough Petes of the OHL as a 17-year-old before joining Youngstown of the USHL, where he scored 56 points in 96 games. Understandably, with that production, he wasn’t considered a hot NHL prospect and went to the KHL, where he scored 21 points in 83 games over two seasons before breaking out last season.

    Signed for two years, at an entry-level of max of $925,000 per season (plus bonuses), Sekac is rapidly-improving and his potential drew lots of interest throughout the league, but it would be premature — considering he’s had basically one productive scoring season in three years — to put big expectations on his scoring significantly for Montreal next season. However, if Sekac found a spot in Montreal’s top nine, maybe he could contribute some offence as a rookie.”

    24 Cups

    • JUST ME says:

      There must be something we do not take into account about him. I am as puzzled today as i was when i learned that 15 teams were running after him and mostly did not understand why i never heard of the guy before. I think he will get to play in the NHL right now if not full time at least for a good trial period.

    • Phil C says:

      I’m sure all eyes will be on him at training camp. If he is in fact NHL ready and a top nine guy, what a huge boost to the lineup he will be.

    Last season, 8 defensemen played a chunk of the season.
    PK played in all 82 games, Markov played in 81, Emelin played 59, Gorges played 66, Diaz in 46, Bouillon in 52 and Murray in 53. Eight defensemen.
    With Gorges, Diaz, Bouillon and Murray being re-placed by Beaulieu, Tinordi, Gilbert and Weaver – I am so ecstatic (as you guys) about the idea of Habs’ best two young defensemen finally playing 50+ games each. About time they broke into the league for a full year. And Pateryn may get a chance to play a ton of games (I am hoping at least 30). There will be growing pains. But this is a huge season for the 3 best dmen from Hamilton last season.

    Could anyone explain why a player like Tinordi isn’t listed for the camp, but Beaulieu is?

    Is it a question of the number of NHL games played making him ineligible, or is it simply at the discretion of the team?

    (went for a quick googling, but couldn’t find any ‘eligibility’ info…)

    • Hobie says:

      I’m guessing he’s a bit older and has been through two or three of them already? He’s probably got 1 or 2 things he’s got to work on that the coaching staff is well aware of.

      Beaulieu might be there to lead the way in drills, show some of the younger players and fringe players what it takes to succeed.

      A guy like Ellis who’s also been to a few might be there because the entire staff wants to get one last look at him before closing the book on him.

      Again, just guesses on my part. :-) I’m no expert. Just a guy who loves talking Habs.

      • Just A Guy says:

        ahh fiddlesticks, there goes my credibility, if I had any that is. Yea, they’re probably older then most.

      • stephen says:

        And all good guesses at that, chum!

        I also wonder if the speculation about Beaulieu’s negative comportment upon being sent back down during the Olympic break has anything to do with his being at the camp.

        edit: Never mind! Was forgetting he played during the playoffs. Hard to imagine they would make the camp a teachable moment if they were high enough on him to play him in big games in the spring.

    • Just A Guy says:

      Could be anything, someone asked the same question at the habs website where the article is, Pateryn, Tinordi and Nygren aren’t on the list.

      Eklund is brewing up an E4 rumour, its been confirmed. :D

      • Loop_Garoo says:

        They are all older. I think there is a rule about this that you can only go to two or three of these. I could be wrong, but I seem to remember reading some sort of guideline about that in the past.

    • HabFab says:

      CBA limits amount of Prospect Camps to be attended. Tinordi was drafted year prior to Beaulieu. The only puzzlier is the non appearance of Reway.

      • CJ says:

        Sadly, I don’t think that this is puzzling. Reway is all world skill wise, but is very tiny. He may not agree with it, but another year in junior would not have hurt him. He needs to learn to play an entire season, consistently, night in and night out. He is missing the consistency aspect.

        • Loop_Garoo says:

          Yes, but the European leagues can be a nice segue that way. He is playing with men, will learn how to be a pro, and hopefully be in Hamilton the year after,

      • eric says:

        he sign with a team in czech league

    • eric says:

      Pateryn is not on the list also. He hardy has any games the habs

    • CJ says:

      This is a very big season for Nate. IMO, the management team wants him on the right track, and expects him to be a leader at this camp. There really is no reason for ethier Nate, Tiny, Pateryn or Nygren to be present. Again, this is just my opinion, but I believe the management team wants to get him involved and have him sharp come September. In fact, I am hoping that part of his off season schedule includes an extended stint in Montreal to work with Allard and the strength and conditioning staff so that he is both mentally and physically prepared for a big step forward next season. Nate needs to be a professional and part of this process is being a leader at the development camp.

      Just my two cents…..

      • Hobie says:

        We’ve been discussing Beaulieu and Tinordi on this site three years on now. It’s awesome that at least one of the two should finally get in a full season, maybe both! There’s a good chance neither one of them sees Hamilton this year.

        • CJ says:

          Hobie, I can say with certainty that the only thing that would make me happier, is to see Bozon fully recovered and ready to join his ‘mates at training camp. I fully expect a big step forward from both Nate and Tiny and look forward to seeing the new and improved defence this fall.

          • Hobie says:

            Absolutely CJ! I had my eye on Bozon before he became ill and still remain very hopeful he becomes a scoring forward with some size for the Habs.

            I actually had a friend pass away from meningitis when I was in high school so I was very concerned for the young man. Amazing that he recovered!

        • JUST ME says:

          One would think that both will graduate permanently but i think Beaulieu will get the gig and Tinordi will split with Pateryn.

          • Loop_Garoo says:

            That is kinda what I am thinking, with Tinordi getting the bigger half of the split. I like Pateryn, but I do think his upside is a 5/6 defender. Tinordi on the other hand, has the talent to be a pretty dominant force defensively.

        • John Q Public says:

          It seems quite clear that management wants the younger players to pay a minimum amount of games in the minors before being called up. No rush unless a player proves otherwise.

    @ habs001 DD has played his entire career with patches and on the first line and at his natural position. Not a fair comparison at all. DD also gets prime PP time, Eller does not. Look at their playoff stats.

    Look at their playoff stats. DD 27 games 10 points plus 5
    Eller, 25 games, 15 points plus 7.

    DD, regular season, 23 hits, Eller 130!

    Give Eller the same opportunity or at least leave him at centre with at least one winger for every game and his scoring stats would probably look better

    Habfan17

    • habs001 says:

      Lets say Eller puts up the same points as DD(i really dont think he would) what do you gain..Eller only takes DD opportunities if he would produce at a much higher pace…i dont think management believes he can do that..the pure eye test of watching every game tells me he cannot do that…

      • Habfan17 says:

        Sorry, I am not sure I understand what you mean. If Eller was putting up the same numbers as DD but with the size and hit differential, DD could be traded! Don’t forget. DD was having a terrible year until around the mid point. Eller is not the only one that was inconsistent this season. The Difference is Eller did not have a 39 goal scorer playing with him all year.

  59. stephen says:

    I understand he’s only a year into his development within the Canadiens organization, but it would be nice to see McCarron come into the upcoming camp with some assertiveness.

    I’m comfortable with the team taking a patient approach with him, but each one of these on-ice sessions is an opportunity for prospects to strengthen their position on the organization’s depth chart, and so it would be nice to see McCarron demonstrate some of the assets and abilities for which he was drafted.

    A ‘quiet’ camp for him would by no means be a disaster, but I’m sure a bit of positive buzz would go a long way in reassuring Habs brass (not to mention fans) that he is hungry for more and not simply content to be there.

    Anyone else looking at other particular prospects at the camp?

    • Hobie says:

      If I recall correctly, last year he played a couple exhibition games in the NHL and did surprisingly well. kept up with the play, made some nice moves, rang a couple off the post and banged some bodies around. People were excited.

      Then he went down to the OHL and things went sour. Kind of puzzling?

      I’m anxious to see what Connor Crisp does this summer and fall. He finished the season in the AHL last year. Could he possibly play a few games in the NHL this year? We’ll see. The sooner the better cuz we’re definitely short a heavyweight.

      We’ll be tough as nails 3-4 years down the road when Brett Lernout, Mike McCarron, Crisp and Jarred Tinordi are all playing together. Crazy tough actually!

      • stephen says:

        Hi Hobie,

        I went to watch him specifically when he was in town with the Knights to play the Frontenacs.

        I think I essentially came away with the impression that he was just trying to ‘find his game’ within the league, if you’ll pardon the cliche. There were flashes of his abilities throughout the game, but there was also an overriding sense of uncertainty and unease, hence the ‘finding his game’ observation.

        Given that the game I saw him play was early in the OHL season, I’m eager to see if and how he has progressed since then. I’m hopeful that I’ll see a much more confident player. He doesn’t have to dominate, but just be confident in what he can do.

        • HardHabits says:

          Sounds like a confidence issue. That or a lack of experience. Probably a bit of both. Time can remedy that.

        • Hobie says:

          The guy is just enormous and still extremely young. I’ve said it a few times on this site but I think he’s just got to get accustomed to controlling that massive frame of his and get more experience. He’s competing with guys a couple years older, six inches shorter, who’ve mastered their trade and already feel comfortable.

          He’s got little speedsters poking the puck off his stick and darting in front of him. He’ll learn how to control the puck and use his body to his advantage.

          I expect he’ll be vastly improved this year, knowing what to expect.

      • Phil C says:

        He suffered a shoulder injury early in the season. They can be very painful and take away your ability to play physically and shoot hard until it’s fully healed, which is like taking away your super-powers if you are a power forward. Hopefully he can get his game back on track after a summer to fully recouperate.

        • stephen says:

          Ah yes, I remember that now, Phil, thanks. It’s a very valid point.

          Also, I’m not sure what the turnover will be like for the Knights this offseason (Horvat, Domi, etc. making the jump?), but he may very well find that his role is increased next season, which I imagine could only help him.

        Yes, Crisp is intriguing. His is a name I’ve been seeing and hearing all season, but I’ve yet to really see him in any game action, so I look forward to seeing what he’s all about.

    • Just A Guy says:

      Also, if I recall, he went from a top line RW to a 3rd line center. So the hesitancy people described could probably come from the stark contrast of how you need to play those two positions.

    • Loop_Garoo says:

      I think the habs brass knew when drafting him that he was a long term project, there is no need for him to worry about that. I think he needs at least a full year in Junior, then at least another full year in Hamilton, but I do believe he will become an NHL caliber player, just waiting to see on what line.

    —————————
    Of course the Habs want to be a playoff team, yet that honesty appears to mean that the young guys will be given a great shot next year…and of course, one would hope that philosophy was discussed and agreed to with Coach MT…..

    Not only the Dmen of Beaulieu-Tinordi-Pateryn, yet also forwards such as Andrighetto-De la Rose….and while GMMB really downplayed the signing of 22 year old UFA Jiri Sekac, he will be given every opportunity and chance to make the Big Club in a starting Top 9 spot.

    The Habs are in transition…and all for the best longer term.

    • Phil C says:

      I thought last year was a mini window of opportunity to win now as you had guys like Subban, Gallagher, and Eller on cheap contracts while the the last wave of the Gainey era signings were still with the team like Markov and Gionta. That’s why I didn’t mind signing Vanek and going for it.

      That window is now closed as Subban is no longer cheap, Gionta and Gorges have moved on, and Markov is not getting any younger. It would not surprise me if they regress a little bit. A proper rebuild takes at least 4-5 years, so the Habs will need to get a little lucky with their free agents and kids stepping up to keep things going in the next couple of years.

        Nevins looked very, very good against Maggio last year during his call up. They fought twice and Nevins was the better man during both exchanges. Maggio is among the very best in the AHL. Nevins is someone who has been on my radar even before having been signed as a free agent. Imama is going to be a nasty piece of business. As I have said before, any team with Churla at the management table is going to know how to take care of themselves. It is not a question of choosing size and truculence over skill and finesse, but complimenting both.

        We have come a very long way in a very short period of time. There is a lot of work yet ahead, but this team is on the rise. Even better, they seem to be doing things that others fail to notice – yes, I’m looking at you Sports Illustrated (didn’t crack their 2014-2015 preview list top 10).

  63. habs001 says:

    With a more mobile D the Hab forwards should get way more help on the offense from them than last year…The Habs lost 39 goals from the forwards that are gone so that has to be replaced and would be nice if they could add another 12-20 more goals but that is unlikely…

    • Habfan17 says:

      Yes and they brought back 22 from Parenteau and Malhotra. That is two in for four players out. If you factor in some players getting more ice time, they should score more and perhaps Sekac or De La Rose makes the team and then factor in their goals.

      On the back end, the Habs lost 3 goals and added 3. That is Murray out no goals, Gorges out 1 goal and Boullion out 2 goals. Gilbert in 3 goals. The biggest difference will be a better transition game as Gilbert had 28 assists. That should help the forwards score a few more. If Beaulieu makes the team full time, he should also contribute some extra offence. I am not worried.

        Larry is still a bit of a head case. Still a bit fragile between the ears.

        If he can find consistency–and a way to maintain his ‘compete level’ (as much as I hate bastardizing the English language to suit sports-talk)–then I think it’s not unreasonable to think he could peak as a 2nd line centre. He has the wheels, frame, and hands for the job. It’s just the decision-making aspect of his game that needs a good deal of work.

        • shiram says:

          Has the tool, but not the tool box kind of thing?
          Maybe.
          He’s still young enough that I think we can rightly hope he improves on what he already achieves.
          But there’s no guarantee he does.

    • Habfan17 says:

      To be fair to Eller and to yourself, you need to look at how many minutes he played who with, in what situations, defensive zone or offensive zone starts, Did he play his natural position. On a couple of occasions he was moved to the wing. Stats don’t tell the whole story. If Eller had been given the 2nd line center position and solid wingers, at least one that remained with him and for a whole season, he did not do well, then I would wonder. He has not had that opportunity yet. I personally am waiting before deciding he can’t be a 2nd line centre. I think he can. I do agree he is not a first line centre, but that is where Galchenyuk should end up.

            Look at their playoff stats. DD 27 games 10 points plus 5
            Eller, 25 games, 15 points plus 7.

            DD, regular season, 23 hits, Eller 130!

            Give Eller the same opportunity or at least leave him at centre with at least one winger for every game and his scoring stats would probably look better

          I posted earlier that Pleks did not show much offence before he made it. Not that his numbers are great, but in Kladno he only had 18 points in 47 games, 9 of those were goals, and 23 points in 48 games, 7 of those were goals. As most agree on here, Pleks is very valuable and he was not great his first few years in Montreal. Eller plays a 200 foot game and is solid in both ends. Lafleur and Shutt both struggled for a couple of seasons before they got going, and they had much more depth at the time. I think patience is the key, This is the year Eller has to prove the playoffs weren’t the exception in my opinion.

            Hope you are right…Different era but Lafleur had 78 goals first 3 years and 175 points… I hear many times that Lafleur struggled in the beginning of his career but those are not bad for first 3 years…Maybe expectations were too high…

      as a 22 year old DD put up 58 points in the AHL….as a 21 year old Lars Eller put up 57 points in th AHL in 7 less games…they are both very comparable.
      As a 24 year old DD put up 23 points in his first 49 nhl games
      As a 24 yr old Eller has played 286 NHL games and had 103 points and a stellar playoff to show…

      But has the potential to be a # 2 C- man, we’ll see this season.

      He is not a number one centre in terms of point production, and maybe avg to just below avg point production for a 2nd line centre, but way way above avg. defensively, and still gives good offensive numbers.

    I spoke with a hockey buddy today located in Buffalo NY.

    The city has a Buzz on – not only because ‘close by’ Rochester native Brian Gionta signed there with a great contract ( 3 years/$12.7M), yet it was more about Josh Gorges REFUSING Toronto… and accepting Buffalo as a landing place.

    Most – especially Buffalo residents, (salt of the earth) realise that Buffalo has a somewhat inferiority complex when it comes to comparing itself to other US cities….yet while its downtown core may be wanting ( see Detroit today…) there are few suburbs nicer than Williamsville/East Amherst with their 5 car garages….where both Pat Lafontaine and Lindy Ruff lived once upon a time.

    Gionta and Gorges are the perfect fit for the young Sabres.
    Their time was up in Montreal because of the situation that had nothing to do with Leadership or Heart, and everything to do about Cap Business and a timely, needed changing of the guard.

    The Habs now need their young guys to take over.
    GMMB stated that happened during the playoffs…and also stated it’s time to move on…

    Hopefully everything works out well for all involved.
    With Gionta and Gorges leading and helping the Sabres kids for the next 2-3 years, the Habs will have their hands full in the future with that stable of talent…as will the forever woeful Leafs.

    • JUST ME says:

      I agree that the Sabres hiring Gionta and Gorges is a good move for that team and gives them badly needed experience on every level for the next seasons that will not be easy to go through. They have decided to build from the foundations of the team and go back to the drawing board and those two guys will be very usefull in solidifying an otherwise fragile confidence. It is always very risky to see kids get their confidence crushed in a losing situation and the Sabres had to bring some sense into an otherwise confused situation.
