The non-affiliated invites:

 

Goalie

Antoine Samuel (ATO)

Eric Gelinas (PTO)

Stefan Leblanc (AHL contract)
Saverio Posa (PTO)

 

Forwards

Jordan Boucher (PTO)

David Broll (AHL contract)

He's been listed as "injured" since the beginning of rookie camp. I think it's just an acknowledgement that he's still in recovery.

Is Carr basically off the radar to make team? I haven't heard his name mentioned forever.

I personally think there's a chance he makes it considering he has to go through waivers. He's been with the club more than Hudon and they might be battling it out at left wing. At worst, he'll fill in come injuries.

Benn and Weber first pair. 

 

Bergevin said in an interview that these two would probably be a pair this year.

Mete is also paired with Weber at times apparently.  While he's not making the team, it'll be interesting to see what type of look they give him.

Does Taormina have any shot at this team? I checked his stats out for last year. I didnt realize he tore up the Ahl and was almost a point per game in 22 playoff games

Lehkonen on right wing and Galchenyuk on left wing seems interesting based on what we've heard.

 

Carr also lower on he depth chart than Hudson and Martinsen based on these very early lineups  so that probably doesn't bode well for his chances.

 

I had the same thoughts about Taormina but Brian will tell you himself that he won't be making the NHL squad.

 

If you want to have a chance at making this team on defense, it seems the best bet is to lower your jersey number.

I think it's telling that he didn't even get a chance in the NHL last year despite his production.  He's a very good offensive producer but his defensive zone play leaves a lot to be desired.  He's a great option in Laval and gives them a real threat from the point that they've been lacking but I think it'd take a few injuries before he'd get a look.

Unrelated to this but check your PM regarding the hockey pool when you get a moment.

So strange how a player can do that well in the AHL, yet completely struggle in the nhl

There are a handful of d-men like that, elite at the AHL level and can't hack it in the NHL.  T.J. Brennan also comes to mind.  They have one high-end skill that they can exploit to succeed in the minors but get exploited for a lack of an all-around game when they move up.  It's similar to some of the smallish forwards that are top line guys in the minors but aren't quite good enough offensively in the NHL to hold down a top-six role and have no two-way game to keep them in the lineup in a lesser spot.

So, 1st game is Monday, is RDS televising the pre-season games?

Looks like all the preseason games will be on RDS outside of September 23rd against Ottawa which will be on RDS 2.

Hudon has two assists as the Habs lead the Habs 2-0 in the second half.

Hudon almost broke in on a breakaway too with a nice dangle. 

 

Gelinas seems like he could make a case for himself

Tough to evaluate guys in a game like this since you don't know whose holding back.  The main guy you wanted to see have a good game though was Hudon and he did exactly that.  Always good to see Reway on the ice as well.
