Habs still have cap room and need bodies. I'd give Da Costa, Shore and Enstrom a shot.

I guess they're rolling with what they've got, though, as they have enough guys under contract.

Lehkonen and Hudon will need to step up. DLR and Peca need to be real 3C's.

I heard today that Price had a .900 save % last season due in large part to the injuries. If he doesn't have a huge bounce back year, the Habs could be the bottom of barrel with the Sens and Nucks.

If Pacioretty is moved for futures, the opening night roster will likely be the worst Habs lineup ever. The defence without Weber will be disastrous.

Simon Despres signed to a PTO. Can’t believe it was Tyson Barrie of all guys (on an admittedly dirty play that deserved a suspension) who effectively ended his career.

Interesting behind the scenes look at the Habs research process for drafting. Love the part by Jonathan Trembley, PhD around the 2 minute mark.

"If he doesn't have those skills now, at least within the average, he's not likely to develop them". Pretty vast generalization to make about a 17 year old no matter what skill set they might be talking about. One gets the sense of just what a gamble drafting is after the obvious sure fire picks.

Danault signed to a reasonable 3.08M extension for three years. UFA after.

He's the no. 2 centre by default, but will probably take the tough faceoffs.

Hope he bounces back after an injury riddled season. Was on pace for another 40 pointer.

I like the Peca addition. Nothing flashy but he brings speed, faceoffs, an ok track record of scoring in the minors and the hunger to prove he can finally make it. He can slide up or down the depth chart as needed.

For a team that's going to be bad anyway, they added a true centre with some offensive upside.

In a holding pattern while we wait for the Pacioretty situation to get resolved.
