    Default Habs News & Notes: 2019 Offseason

    1-year, one way deal @ $800K

    Good money for AHL once he fails to make the team out of camp and is put on waivers

    Seems this offseason was about building a powerhouse....in Laval

    Yeah, The Habs get up to a $900K cap savings by sending a player down so when Hudon plays the year in Laval it won't affect the big club's cap.

    Good money for AHL is right.

    Hudon will make more in the AHL than the NHL because he won't have escrow to pay.

    Pretty good deal.
    I probably work too much for my own good.

    Pretty much. There isn't much of a difference between Thompson/Hudon/Cousins/Varone, to be honest.

    They're depth players to be inserted in case of injury.

    Nobody would have given Hudon a one way contract. But he probably would have signed a two way contract somewhere else for a new start. I guess that's why the Habs did what they did.

    It seems to be the trend with those borderline NHLers or veteran AHLers. We did the same with Verone and Barber.

    Probably the Habs wanted to do the same thing with Hudon like those guys, give him guaranteed money on a two way contract, like maybe $300,000 or so. But Hudon most likely said if its two way I take highway out of Montreal.

    Hudon has a strange relationship with the Habs. The organization wants him around but Julien has no use for him.

    He refused his one way qualifying offer, so he wasn't about to accept a 2-way contract.

    Chances are the arbitrator would have given him a one way deal as well.

    Yup. The second he was offered a QO, there was no chance he was taking a 2-way deal.

    The QO is (if I remember correctly) a 10% increase on the previous contract's AAV, which was 725k. That would come out to around $795k.

    Had the Habs not offered him a QO, which would have made him a UFA, a 2-way deal might have been possible.
