    This guys will be in Laval and 100% of his cap will come off. So this guy doesn't hinder signing Lehkonen and Armia

    Wasn't this kid moderately touted some time ago? Seems to be coming off a strong season in the A too.

    MB really did have his eggs in one basket yesterday. Normally, he would have signed a couple of AHLers, only one? Aho stole the show.

    they could have a large incoming rookie class though so they don't need many bodies for Laval especially if Hudon ends up there.

    If the alternative is overpaying for mediocre players who's contracts will make it difficult to re-sign Domi, KK, Poehling, Gallagher etc.........then yes.

    I wouldn't mind Ben Chiarot on a two year deal but that seems unlikely.

    Yes I agree with that. But this signing will not get in the way of that. I like Chariot too, but still don't want any bad contracts. I think I'd prefer to trade than take a bad contract...

    A late bloomer perhaps,got his game all together now? Got some size and must have some hands to pot those points and goals. Might be a good cheaper option over Shaw. Less yap yap,but still feisty.

    I have my reservations, it's rare for guys who are AHLers at age 25 to become impactful contributors at the NHL level but hope he does well.

    Agreed, but worth a look at least. Weal seems to have found his game in MTL,so,lightning can strike twice?

    Actually I have my reservations for Weal too, he "seemed to find his game" in Philly too but then fell a bit off a cliff until he got traded here. I have no problem with either signing though, it's low risk moderate reward imo.

    It was a short sample size in Montreal,but if he can continue as he did the last 10-15 games or so. The PP started to work better with him for some reason. He seems like a smart player and was not with the complimentary players on his other teams.I'm curios as to what Barber really is as I know little about him.

    Could Barber be a surprise? There’s some flop history about those type of players. There’s some success history about those type of players. Which of one he could be? Like he said it’s a turning point of his career.

    Good news is that Michel isn't the coach anymore. I bet he would be on the top 6 after 5-10games in the season.

    The Habs have won 1 playoff series in 5 years, they kind of suck already. I don't see them making the playoffs with today's roster, and we know injuries will hit so while I hope Barber is in Laval all year, chances are he could see time there depending on how they want to handle guys like Evans, Suzuki, Poehling, etc..in terms of moving up them or just going with vets like Barber, Peca, Weise, Varano, Hudon, McCarron, minus whoever made the Habs full time to begin with.
