Even though training camp will be shortened, each team will be bringing a few extra players along to try out for spots at camp. In anticipation of this the Bulldogs called up a couple of players today (and I suspect may add another one or two before too long). My question is twofold - who should get an invite and who will get an invite?
As Palushaj, St. Denis, and Desjardins signed AHL-only deals under the special lockout provision from the AHL, they will have to go through the waiver process to return to Hamilton. As such, they may spend some time in camp (Palushaj is injured at the moment too so I would imagine he'll be on the NHL roster until he's healthy). Obviously, a few other players will get a look as well. I'm giving away a possible response to a piece we're pondering for the site but my picks would be Dumont, Gallagher, and Leblanc up front. On defence, I think one could be invited but I'm flip-flopping on who.
