    Ya, weird signing in that sense, he didn't play anywhere and another smallish forward who hasn't even produced much in the AHL let alone the NHL. I guess it's fine as long as he does not take ice time away from a youngster.

    He had a 26 points season in the NHL.

    He's a good vet for the AHL bottom 9 and who knows maybe Bouchard can unblock him like he did Belzile and Veilleux.

    He was good enough to be a depth guy for some time in the NHL, he could be a decent veteran for Laval if he's anywhere near his best shape. In all depends on his mind set coming in. If he's just there for a cup of coffee we'll know right away, especially with Bouchard coaching.

    Bouchard doesn't care how many points his vets can put in the AHL, he wants guys who work their ass off or they can sit and go elsewhere like Barber and Varone last year.

    Belzile, Veilleux and Bourque are all hard workers and those are the kind of vets that Bouchard wants around the team, especially for the young guys.

    Current line-up only considering re-signed/signed players:

    RHP - Vejdemo - Ylonen
    Teasdale - Hillis - Bourque
    Khisatmudinov - Desruisseaux - Ducharme

    Ouellet - Brook
    Paquette-Bisson - Schueneman
    Fairbrother - Amorosa

    Primeau

    RFA that should/could be back:
    Blandisi, Lucchini, Pezzetta, Poehling
    McNiven

    I wouldn't mind another top6 C in addition to Blandisi, especially since Vejdemo/Poehling might be up. They also should either re-sign Veilleux or a replacement. They should also look at either bringing back Hudon or signing another vet goalscorer.

    For the D, we need another good RD, especially if Fleury doesn't make it back.

    Overager with big numbers(only 1 season). Don't know much about him except for paper stats. On the short/smallish size and can play LW/C. Not sure what to think but I'd like to see him tryout some games in Laval next year.

    Any in-depth thoughts?

    Blandisi is a decent player. I would re-sign him and McNiven.

    Poehling should be signed but he is likely NHL level now.

    Pezzetta and Lucchini are not worthy to get another NHL contract.

    Of the UFAs, Frolik, Weal, Oloffson and Dauphin likely want a shot elsewhere. Belzile will probably come back on a new NHL two-way deal. Baddock, Paquette-Bisson and Veilleux could get AHL deals, maybe Leguerrier too. I expect Demchenko to go back to Russia.

    Bisson already re-signed an AHL deal with Laval.

    Demchenko already signed in Russia (Leskinen in Finland, Olofsson likely to Sweden or another NHL team).

    Totally disagree, Pezzetta should get a contract, solid AHL player for his role IMO.

    No chance to be an NHLer in my opinion. Laval can sign him directly, no?

    Sure. Depends what other offers he gets as he will be UFA unless we QO him, at which point he could just accept the QO and have an NHL contract.

    Veilleux won't be back. He's off to the DEL in Germany for two years.

    And the big news:



    Marcotte hears that Bouchard may not be back. It isn't confirmed but he is currently evaluating his options. I'm sure one of them is him returning to Laval.

    Damn with that picture I thought it was Chris Higgins.

    Happy to have Baddock back, he brings something we need with the youngsters.

    A 31 year old vet who has played between NHL, AHL over the years and has played in Europe a few times, as well.

    So this may mean McNiven won't be back, unless they see him as 3R goalie that can called up to Laval. But I have a hard time thinking they'll have him as ECHL goalie after the good job he's done every time he's in Laval.

    Turcotte says maybe Poulin is there for the ECHL.

    It says one-way contract which probably means AHL only.

    But he did play junior in Victoriaville which is close by to Trois-Rivières.

    It sure is weird to get him when you already have Primeau-McNiven. I would agree that we needed a veteran in case of injuries but Poulin seems too good for the ECHL.

    One-Way only means he's paid the same whether he's in the AHL or ECHL.

    Makes me wonder what the teams plans are in net. Are they expecting Allen to be gone and maybe figure they will go with Primeau in Montreal?

    Strange signing that Poulin one. Not that he's not a good goalie...but they must know something we don't. He's not giong to play in the ECHL. I don't see McNivean giong there too. In case Allen gets picked? Which would mean Price-Primeau + Poulin-McNiven.
