    We gotta give this guy his own thread. He walked out of the Habs prospect camp and signed with the Bruins. LEGENDARY MOVE.

    Galipeau is a 21 year old, 6'0, 210 lb defenceman who had a nice jump in production in his final junior year at 74 points in 67 games capped with a Memorial Cup.

    Dissing the Habs is the greatest start to a Bruins' prospect's career ever. I want this guy to make it so bad now.

    Red-Line had him the 306 ranked prospect in 2015.

    He's still only 21, undrafted and left Canadiens camp to sign with the Bruins. He's become my favorite prospect!

    Did he sign an ELC with Boston or an AHL deal with Providence? Theres a big difference and I’ve only send reports of the latter.

    He lead all dmen on his team in playoff scoring and 2nd overall with 20 points in 20 games. Not too shabby. I'm curious to see how he performs in camp!

    I thought he looked good in the Memorial Cup games I watched. Not sure how much of that was because of him being a 20 year old? Regardless, he dominated the way you would want an older player to, so not sure how you complain about that? Give him a shot and see what he can do.

    Maybe he sees the Montreal dumpster fire. Turns around and looks a couple hollers over and sees the bright lights of Boston and a Bruins team on the rise.

    Or MTL p***** him off somehow.

    Took 54 years almost to the day, but we finally got them back for the Dryden trade. :sarcasm:

    It was probably just as simple as MTL offering him just an invite to the camp, while the B’s offered him some security with an AHL contract.
