Some young RDs that HuGort may know about and that may be a good addition to LAV if they accept an AHL or 2-way contract:

A 2-way contract is still an NHL contract and counts against the 50-contract ceiling ... doubt there is anyone on the list that warrants an NHL contract ... I expect any AHL contract on defence will go to more experienced players to mentor the youngsters.

Out of the few RDs on that list, I don't think anyone familiar with those players would actually want one signed to an AHL deal.  Maybe Roger but he wouldn't be cracking Laval's lineup anyway.  It's not a particularly good group of players to choose from. 

 

There was a second Hab on that list originally as well but he was removed recently, Joe Vrbetic.  I have a piece about Dichow coming later today when his release is official and I dig in a bit in that one as to why Vrbetic is still going to be with the team.

I wanted the Habs to pickup Bellows on the cheap a few seasons ago, he has been booted to the recycling bin as a reclamation project. He never established himself in the AHL or NHL. Having unheralded seasons in Bridgeport. Maybe an alternative to Teasdale or Belzile if they are not re-signed?

There could be a change on Laval's coaching staff next season:

 

 

Someone suggested to me a few weeks ago that there could be an assistant change coming but I didn't think it was going to be Buchberger looking to move on.  My working theory was that Martin Laperriere would be opting to take one of the many QMJHL head coaching spots.

Does Buchberger have much of a coaching resume?

 

Just hard to believe the AHL "hockey" season ends June 21st, so out of season its just stupid.

There is only one Kelly Buchberger listed ...no idea why his year in Laval wasn't worth listing

I watched Davidson a lot at the Memorial Cup and some of the WHL playoff games on TV.  There is no questioning his grit and attitude.  He might turn into a good 4th line center but I think the question mark is his skating. It needs to get better, it didn't seem that great to me.

As of yet, Martel, Bourque, Centorame, and Dello are not signed with Laval for next season.

 

You can take Beck off the table as he is not AHL-eligible next year.

 

Of note, for anyone wondering, all 4 RFAs need waivers to get to Laval as do Primeau, Andersson, Keeper, and Maillet

Some of the guys who end up in Laval's camp will end up in the jewel of La Mauricie (Trois Rivieres) ... I won't be shocked if some of the youngsters get short stints with Les Lions to get some heavy TOI.

A new defenceman has signed, Noah Laaouan.  He gets a two-way AHL deal and seems likely to be ECHL depth.

Also, one more to take off the depth chart, Abbandonato hasn't signed for next season, he's an AHL UFA.
