They had to release an official statement saying they would be there. Damage control? This is such a mess.

Habs trade Kerby Rychel for Hunter Shinkaruk. Should put up some points in Laval.

OK, now that it's looking clear Max will at least start the season a Hab, here's how I think the lineup could shake out:

Pacioretty-Danault-Gallagher
Domi-Drouin-Hudon
Lehkonen-De La Rose-Armia
Deslauriers-Plekanec-Scherbak
Peca

Hurt: Byron, Shaw

Alzner-Petry
Schlemko-Juulsen
Mete-Benn
Reilly

Hurt: Weber

Priciemi

It also wouldn't shock me if they kept Mete, Juulsen in the minors for a month or two just to prop up Laval and maybe work them as a pair. They could in theory go with a Petry, Alzner, Schlemko, Benn, Reilly, Despres top 6. :steamingpileofcrap:

The forwards are an interesting mix with two actual centres on the way in a year, but the defence might be one of the worst I've ever seen. Ranked based on actual talent:

Petry
Juulsen
Mete
Reilly
Alzner
Benn
Schlemko
Valiev
Despres
Ouellet
Two Czech guys
Lernout
Fleury

Sounds like someone's gonna be trading for Jacob Trouba...

...or Slava Voynov.

Still through the draft, but considering they take longer to develop, you can pick up some useful ones on the trade market from teams who've lost their patience. Maybe Reilly establishes himself as a useful bottom pairing guy this season?

They don't have elite defence prospects, but Mete-Juulsen looks like a legit future second pairing. Scouts are high on RD's Fleury and Brook. LD Romanov is 18 and playing in the KHL. Gotta think they'll try to sign LD Schuldt from St. Cloud once Poehling is ready to come over.

This team is already looking towards 2020, but this season will be an important one in establishing who will stick around for the whole rebuild, especially on defence. Habs have used 15, 15, 14, 12 defencemen in previous seasons, so everyone on the depth chart will get a shot at some point.

In theory, Weber, Alzner and Petry are going nowhere. But Weber will lose a season, Alzner needs to figure out how to play in a fast league and Petry is a potentially attractive trade chip. If things go majorly sideways maybe they go.

Schlemko has two years on his deal at not much money so they're hoping he can be a 6-7. Reilly and Valiev will get a chance to stick for real. Depth guys at best.

Ouellet and Despres are low-risk reclamation projects. They'll both get callups when injuries/ineffectiveness strike. Habs seem high on ECHL guy TJ Melancon and Czech dman David Sklenicka.

LD: Alzner, Mete, Schlemko, Reilly, Valiev, Ouellet, Sklenicka
RD: Weber, Petry, Juulsen, Benn, Despres, Melancon, Lernout, Moracvik

Future guys:

LD: Romanov, Tyzska, Walford
RD: Brook, Fleury

Joel Ward gets a PTO. Habs wanted him so badly both times he was a UFA, but he opted for Washington and San Jose instead. Probably too slow at 37, but it doesn't hurt to find out.

Kirk Muller had Lyme Disease last season! Damn. That explains how limited his involvement with the team seemed to be last season (he was on the bench, but didn't have that same presence with media/PP/faceoffs).

Also, Domi is centering Drouin today in scrimmage. Smart move.

I'm reading Domi/Drouin are actually clicking quite well together...maybe they're onto something there.

Paul Byron gets a 4-year extension at 3.5M per. He still has a year left on his current deal, so he'll be around next five years, till he's 33.

Just came off major shoulder surgery and has been banged up a lot in his career, but he's effective when healthy and has scored 20 in consecutive seasons. That being said, it's a lot of years and I can't imagine him being effective for the length of the deal. But he's got speed, versatility and speed for now and the team is only getting younger, so even if he peters out in two years, they'll probably get their money's worth and he won't wreck their cap situation. But they're paying for past performance, basically.

Matthew Peca will be given every opportunity to open the season as the number two or three centre. Based on an article in the Athletic, he's seen as the potential next Marchessault, and got multiple offers similar to the Habs. Montreal is the only team that could basically guarantee him a centre spot, though, and that's what they did.

Danault-Peca-Domi-Plekanec to start the season, with De La Rose as fill-in and maybe even Suzuki.

Lots of waivers: McCarron, Valiev, Lernout, Froese, Shinkaruk

Big Mike would appear to be another first round bust for the Habs. They screwed him up by recommending he choose London over Western Mich, then screwed him up by turning him into a grinder.

Saw his early camps (in-person in Brossard, even) and he looked like a wrecking ball. They should've worked on his skating instead of faceoffs/forecheck.

So tonight. After the Ottawa pre season game. With the kid they have a chance to maybe win a couple of games. Without him they are worse as a team.

Why waste a year of his entry deal on this garbage fire? Stupid Molson just wants to sell some tickets.
