Sanford, White, Maxwell, Henry, Weber to ‘Dogs

The Canadiens have sent goalie Curtis Sanford, forwards Ryan White and Ben Maxwell and defencemen Yannick Weber and Alex Henry to the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs.

The Habs are en route from Quebec to Toronto on a charter flight, arriving at their Toronto hotel late this afternoon. We’ll see if the team will make head coach Jacques Martin available to discuss the roster moves.

Will the team playing Brian Burke hockey take some penalties tomorrow night?

If so, these are the power-play units they’ll be facing, based on alignments at practice today:

First wave: Plekanec-Gomez-Gionta-Subban-Spacek

Second wave: Eller-AK46-Pouliot-Gorges-Picard

    It’s not about the number, it’s about the type — the clutching and grabbing (lazy) penalties

  3. gatorhabs says:

    He should change his name to  Alex Henri.

  4. Storm Man says:

    I see where you go for your deep thoughts. Just make sure you wash your hands after. 

  5. Slovak says:

    sorry my mistake, but at least you need a big heart to win it :)

  6. Slovak says:

    Am just playing with kids like Stormyman just for fun…I think you know…:) Pilsner is Czech – it is my first choice…:)

    I usually watch only a handful of Flames games per year (and even that not voluntarily) and remember seeing him playing with some 4th line goons. Plus a buddy of mine, who is a big flames fan, couldn’t get rid of Boyd fast enough. So I don’t know. To me, he didn’t stand out.

  8. RGM says:

    Picard is a temporary stop-gap measure until Hamrlik’s ready to go. He won’t be costing us our playoff spot or anything epic to the point that he could be a big mistake. A minor one at worst.

    Go Habs Go!

  9. RGM says:

    Did Red even watch the Cup Finals?

    Go Habs Go!

    I reckon he’s right. With the realities of the cap we can all kiss living to see another hockey dynasty goodbye. A shame, since I was too young to witness the last one. “It’s my goal to lead the league in 4 minute roughing things” -Scott Gomez

    Who were his linemates in Calgary?
