    That's fine and dandy but still makes it look less professional. A lot can happen in eight games, a quick winning or losing streak and the standings could change a whole hell of a lot.

    Yup. It's an odd one for sure. But despite the AHL being the second tier league in North America and is meant to be developing future NHL'ers, it feels bush league more than anything.

    Their website is just bleh. It needs a real good makeover. The video feeds of the games you watch through AHL Live is real poor. The OHL, WHL, and the Q offer nicer websites and better video feeds.

    Not that I think the world of them, but one of them is from my hometown, something I never thought I'd see (Morgan Adams-Moisan, from La Tuque)

    Interesting to note one of the signings is formerly of Bouchard's Armada and the other is from Ducharme's Voltigeurs. Hmmm... more smoke leading to the fire of those men joining the organization?

    Not to forget Alain from Bouchard's Armada too.

    I agree there really seems to be something going on.

    Joel Bouchard - GM and Ducharme as coach. This is the dream I have right now for the Rocket.

    Morgan Adams-Moisan??? Seriously? Geez this guy is tough as nails...but just can't skate.....Melancon is just....average. I know, just AHL signatures but still bad ones.

    A AHL GM is nothing. You first are assistant to the GM....AND you add AHL GM. He is not the ones who takes any decisions EXCEPT the kind of signatures we are just seeing. But everything else is fueled by the GM and the scouts. Bouchard will never be just that.

    I was talking about the Rocket only but in my scenario Bouchard would be AGM too with the Habs. Carrière should be a scout for now.

    Who is better Ebbing or Adams-Moisan?

    Carriere should be unemployed, at least as far as the Habs are concerned

    So according to EOTP, T.J. Melancon signed a One-Way AHL Contract. He was with Norfolk Admirals in the ECHL last year and had 43 points (15G, 28A) in 58 games. He also played in the AHL on an ATO/PTO with Belleville (2 games), Syracuse (6 games), and Tucson (1 game). He didn't have any points in the 9 games he played between the three teams.

    As for Morgan Adams-Moisan, he is signed to a Two-Way AHL Contract. This means if he is sent to the ECHL, he gets paid less. Adams-Moisan had a significant bump in production last season in Drummondville after spending the previous three with Blainville-Boisbriand. After having 11 points in 58 games in 2015-16, and 12 points in 62 games in 2016-17, he had 61 points (32G, 29A) in 68 games last season.

    Laval had already signed Adam Plant for the 2018-19 season to a One-Way AHL Contract. This LD spent the last four seasons at University of Denver in the NCAA, winning the Championship in 2017.

    I like that the Rocket are signing some of these guys. Because even if they all end up in the ECHL, it's always better to have your own players there ready for a call up to the AHL team once they are faced with injuries/call ups to the NHL.

    Neither. I'd do without both of them easily. But Adams-Moisan had an interesting boost compared to his other seasons that might be worth a shot. Just that in no way shape or from is he a future NHL'er. If Waked had all the trouble adapting, can't imagine Adams-Moisan...Melancon could be interesting. Surely more interesting than the guy they signed Adam Plant.....I have no idea how those professionnals could be so off.....even JUST as a AHL signing.

    Well I saw Plant live with the Rocket and he has nice speed and mobile, but he's nothing more than AHLer at the very best.

    In an ideal world, Waked should have been sent in the ECHL early in the season, mismanagement there. Or 'Lefebvre/Carriere management'.

    And Adams-Moisan, I don't see the NHL potential either, but who knows, maybe the confidence he gained will translate into something, I know I liked the way he worked around the net, bullish and a pain in the ass.

    Melancon I don't know him, but I wondered what the heck they saw in Plant, and, I don't know, just seems like a 'project' that is recurring, the 'Mac Bennett experiment'.

    Mac Bennett, David Makowski, Joel Hanley, Tom Parisi, now Adam Plant... small mobile D who someone seem to hope develops into something they can't.

    Said the same a couple of weeks ago
    That would be a fantastic move for the organization.

    I guess these are the type of moves just to please some of the fans who still think language is the most important thing regarding a hockey team

    This post makes even less sense when you factor in Melancon is from Oshawa.

    95% of those fans don't follow the teams anyways. It's al about the pronunciation of the name
