    That's a good question...I can't answer that.

    But extending a qualifying offer, does not automatically mean the player will accept it.

    Hudon can say "thanks but no thanks"...

    This could purely be a move for optics, which considering the player and the organization, I wouldn't be shocked if that was the case.

    Why wouldn't they? Extra body in camp, maybe get a 5th for him before the season starts.

    If they couldn't get a 5th round pick last season, they won't get one this season that's for sure

    If i'm his agent...i've read the tea leaves.

    Move to another team where he'll have a clean slate.

    Just a reminder that extending the qualifying offer simply retains his rights...Hudon doesn't have to accept it.

    Can he play in the AHL? (as in is he contractually allowed?) I don't see a possible spot for him with the Habs next season.

    I saw the abbreviated title and it said “The Habs have extended...” and I thought it was Domi.

    Useless move IMO

    But if he does it's the easiest million bucks he'll ever make, cause he sure as hell isn't playing on the main roster next season... (scratch that... Habs will never cease to surprise me in a bad way)

    He has to clear waivers, but yeah.

    He'd look good on a 1st line with Suzuki down there.

    Anyone can play in the AHL. Even Crosby can play there if Pittsburgh decides to send him down.

    But most players have to go through waivers to be sent there. Hudon would need to clear waivers.

    Hopefully, as 417 mentioned, let's hope that it's nothing but a public relations stunt that Hudon offer. Though it's still stupid, just make moves, and own it....I just hope that this is what it is instead of the thought that Hudon could really be helpful. 'Cause that makes no sense. Hudon needs a fresh start before moving on to Europe. Just to see what he can do elsewhere.

    We already have no room for him and the summer hasn't started it. And with the boatload of changes, there is just no place....Leave me with my world of unicorns please....

    Yeah he'll probably just be lost on waivers to LA but I'm trying to be optimistic.

    Than he'll be lost on waivers, or play in the AHL. What's the harm?

    His QO is $715,000. He will never count against the cap. What exactly is the problem?

    Sure why not. Wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, hopefully he turns up to camp a little more improved so we can make use of him.

    Why? Are you paying him from your own pocket?
