Worst case scenario, he stays in the AHL for 2 years, does absolutely nothing, he's hurt, and no one gives him a second contract, his career is done. 


Even in this scenario, he still has the signing bonus money in the bank and it will pay for a year of school.

He'll get his signing bonus and his two years of AHL (at the minimum) even after he finishes his degree.

 

Anyway, the family believes in education. They did their own math, and it worked for them. I respect their decision, even if it means that Harris might not pull on a Habs sweater until one year later.

I fear I might be at risk of moaning Cole Caufield's stat line during sex.

Its been too long between Habs games and I might be drunk.

I still think it best to go the NCAA route for at least one year, look at Poehling now after waiting couple years, being in weight room twice a day and practising more than playing. Let the kid adjust

Yep. I agree. I just hope that part of it isn’t him wanting to be a UFA and puck where he wants to play. Was he also a friend of Poehling, or was that someone else? if there is a relationship between the two, I hope Poehling’s lack of success didn’t play a role.

Somehow I don't think the Harris family political views would mesh well with those of Poehling!

Wasn’t there another habs prospect that played with Poehling?  For some reason I thought it was Harris.

Yes, but hockey careers are only so long before your body loses a step, etc.... if he came out now, he'd start that development sooner and have more than enough money to finish his degree.  Instead of playing hockey for free, he'd be getting paid for using one of those seasons (and developing in a better league, being closer to the NHL).

 

This makes me worried it isn't about staying in school, its about going UFA.

That’s my worry. Usually players will make the jump if everyone thinks they are ready to give it a go at the next step -  unless they don’t want to go where they were drafted.

His dad is black so unlikely to be a Trump supporter.

Unlikley but Trump actually increased his share of the "black" vote, garnering 18% of the votes by black males

Dont have RDS, so SOL.

 

BUT, who do we want to win this one? B-State and help end Caufield's NCAA career sooner?

So glad that Wisconsin is down 3 and likely to get bounced.  Welcome to Montreal Cole Caufield.

So, do we think he is headed for taxi squad or Laval 1st?

Is his salary cheap enough to add to Habs roster?

He will be on an ELC, so him on the Habs roster and any of the other forwards to the taxi squad works cap wise. 

I think he comes to the taxi squad.  Gets in a few practices and then if he looks good they put him in the lineup.

30g in 31 NCAA games this year suggests he's ready.  He's the clear best player in college hockey.  Its not often that the best player in college hockey (while also being a non-senior) is not NHL ready.

Caufield should be in the lineup and on the 2nd PP unit as soon as he has a couple of practices under his belt to learn the PP plan they want executed.
