Helps us with the 50 contracts limit and we retain his rights?
He just won't be qualified making him an ufa.
Yes, if we do retain his rights, he won't count on the 50 limit.
We have nothing to lose by keeping his rights while he is there.
that's pretty awesome we still have his rights. I wonder if MB is planning on keeping Budaj or if he feels Tokarski will be ready by next year. I'd rather the safe route with Budaj.
So Delmas/Tokarski in Hamilton next season?
I guess Mayer feels he has no shot at a NHL job in the near future and would rather play at home than ride the bus in the AHL.
Should have expected that coming, with the acquisition of Tokarski and all. With that trade going down, he's 4th in depth - maybe even 5th if Delmas comes into Hamilton and does his job well (riding the pine most nights, I know). I think if the Habs bring back Budaj or sign another back-up and run with Tokarski-Delmas down in Hamilton, the Habs are nicely surrounded.
yes that should be the case, plus they could add another goalie, perhaps an undrafted FA to go to the ECHL.
Good luck to Mayer in the Swiss league, great news.
He wouldn't have been behind Delmas.
I know he received a lot of criticism from fans (myself included) but he was at least a good 1B at the AHL level.
It has no impact on the 50 contract limit because Mayer had no contract for next season.
Hopefully they won't have to draft him too high.
I really don't get the Mayer bashing. He has steadily improved every year when he was with the Bulldogs. There have been times where he has been absolutely lights out, stopping over 35 shots on the regular. I think he's only going to get better. Not exactly NHL starter quality but perhaps AHL starter.
Desjardins will be ufa this summer
I liked Mayer this year, but it's doubtful he has NHL upside so this is a good move for him.
Sign him and trade him back to Tampa
Too bad. I liked the progression I've seen from him. Could've possibly made a crack at being a high-end AHL starter/NHL backup type player.
Isn't Ã‰tienne Marcoux 20 years old? Or is it another Marcoux you're talking about?
Does this open up a roster spot for Matthieu Garon?
Budaj has done his job as a backup and would be cheap so I think we'll see him back next year, wouldn't mind seeing us try signing a NCAA goalie to battle with Delmas as the backup for the Bulldogs.
Yes it's Ã‰tienne! At 19 years, he still is draft eligible.
Is he not currently under contract with the Habs/Bulldogs?
How can he sign a contract for next season already?
This doesn't affect his current contract. Plus it's in Europe, so I don't think there's a problem, different tampering rules?
If Bergevin resigns or gets fired, I am nominating you to be the new GM.
Any good NCAA goalie that could be sign this summer? Any players actually that are worth speaking of? Except DeKeyser who will sign in Detroit.
Has Aaron Dell sign anywhere? How has he been this year?
