    Should have brought up Boyd with him.

    Again, Boyd would have to go through re-entry waivers (no?) and we'd lose him. He's not coming back.

    So what? He's not helping us anyway in Hamilton. If someone wants him, the Habs should find out who and make a trade. What a waste, he's playing with kids down there and dominating.

    It will be interesting to see what kind of role this kid has with us...

    Yup.

    Once Desharnais realizes that he can go around people like the pylons that are called defensemen in the AHL, he'll be in tough.

    It's too bad, though. He has the speed, work ethic & talent to be an NHLer, but his size will kill his hopes.

    If they play him 8 minutes on the fourth line as a winger, then there's absolutely no point in even bothering to call him up. He'll be set up to fail.

    If they put him on the top-6 - hell, even top-9 - with good amounts of ice time and give him second PP time, then yeah he'll have a fair shake.

    Fleury was pretty damn good and would have been a hall of famer if his life wasn't messed up.

    Then tell me, how is he going to be successful?

    There's a reason why undersized players - especially those under 5'10 - need to be exceptionally good at something to stick in the NHL.

    He has exceptional talent, no doubt about it, but his lack of strength as he will be constantly knocked off the puck by bigger players will be his major problem.

    I'd love to see the kid succeed. He definitely has talent and drive but he needs to bulk up seriously if he wants an NHL career.
