couldn't ask for a better bottom 6 guy. Gives both accountability and a great example for the younger guys to follow, especially the kids coming up from Hamilton.

He is All Heart, I love it. And for 700k I think it is a steal by PG

I had counted him as gone already.

He is slow and i doubt he will be any quicker this year.

But he does have some leadership qualities and will be fine as the extra forward i guess.

A steal? i wouldnt qualify it as such, but again; another smart, cheap, conservative signing by Gauthier and Darche can act as mentor to AHLers looking to crack lineup.

And yes, you cant question Darch's effort level.

What's interesting is that Darche was supposed to be the subject of my next free agent assessment which originally was scheduled for yesterday. I moved it to today with Kostitsyn's signing, guess I shouldn't have. (For the record, I was going to say he was going to get around $750k from the Habs.) Guess I'm writing about Halpern then.

For $700k, you're not going to get a whole lot, that's what the 4th liners/reserve forwards make. Darche has shown he can be useful and brings a bit of size to the team...and the fact he's a local doesn't hurt either. It's not a steal by any stretch but good value nonetheless.

I really like that Montreal seems to be making an effort to sign local players, even though many Quebec players are scared of the pressure in Montreal (or are ex Nordique fans :P)
