Like last season, I'll track the offseason moves for the Dogs who will most likely see turnover resembling that of the Habs last summer.



New players:

F Jimmy Bonneau (Rochester, AHL)

D Kyle Klubertanz (Djurgarden, SEL)
D Brendon Nash (Cornell, NCAA)
D Neil Petruic (Binghamton, AHL)
F Ian Schultz (Calgary, WHL)
D David Urquhart (Hartford, AHL)

(Plus full seasons from late season additions Hunter Bishop, Gabriel Dumont, Olivier Fortier, and Dany Masse)

Confirmed/potential departures, not including free agents:

D Shawn Belle (signed with Edmonton)
D Andre Benoit (signed with Ottawa)
F Mathieu Darche (1-way deal with the Habs, will have every chance to crack the roster)
G Cedrick Desjardins (traded to Tampa Bay)
F Mike Glumac (signed 1 year contract with Kassel, DEL)
F Mikael Johansson (signed 3 year extension with Farjestad, SEL)
F Maxime Lacroix (team option declined)
F Ben Maxwell (could be full time NHL'er)
F Max Pacioretty (waiver exempt but cracked the Habs at the start of last year)
F Tom Pyatt (likely full time NHL'er)
F Grant Stevenson (signed a 1 year deal with Augsberger, DEL)
F Greg Stewart (signed with Edmonton)
D P.K. Subban (likely full time NHL'er)
F Brock Trotter (signed 1 year contract (plus option) with Riga, KHL)

F Greg Stewart (requires waivers, may not be qualified)
F Brock Trotter (requires waivers)
F J.T. Wyman

F Mike Glumac
D Alex Henry
G Curtis Sanford

AHL Free Agents:
D/F Chad Anderson

I don't see Weber on your list. I would be interested to see why you don't think Wyman and Desharnais would not have to clear wavers to play in Hamilton. Sanford, unless you have him pegged as a back-up in Montreal I think he is gone. It would be interesting to know if any of the tryouts in the developmental have a chance to stick.

Right now, there's 7 d-men in Montreal not including Weber. As it stands, he starts in Hamilton (I think). Desharnais is 1 full year away from waivers or 64 NHL GP, so he's exempt to start. Same for Wyman, exempt for 1 more year, except he's 67 games away from the threshold. I'm not sure about Sanford, he could stay in Hamilton depending on what happens so I just put him in the UFA column for now.

I have been told that the Bulldogs would like to have Sanford back again next season. I guess we'll see what happens...

I read somewhere to-day that ex-bulldog Jimmy Bonneau had been resigned by the dogs, can't remember where I read it.

HF Boards has both Urquhart (David) and Bonneau listed as AHL contracts.

Bulldogs sign D Neil Petruic to a minor league deal. An 8th round pick of Ottawa in 2001, he split last season between the ECHL and AHL - in the 'A', he played for Binghamton/Manitoba.
