the kid brought his body fat % down from 14 to 8% which is ALOT. He must have been eating burn toast and distilled water all summer to lose that much fat.

Not only that, he put on 15lbs of muscle and skates at a lean 198lbs. He's also got alot of drive and I love seeing players like that. Him and Subban are gonna light it up in the next 3 years or so

I hope we don't push Pacioretty into an NHL role this season. I think it was a mistake to keep him up with the big team for so long last year. Not only could he have been molding his game in Hamilton, but we kicked his first year of his entry level contract into action, did we not? How do those rules work, anyway?

Anywho... I think this year would be a good year to play big minutes in Hamilton! If he's ready, he's ready. If not, let's not force the issue!

I don't know what it is about him. I know he still has some things to learn, but in the 34 games with the Habs last season he didn't look out of place at all.

Seeing him out there with the rookies, you can see that he is a step ahead of 99% of them. Maybe it's just me. we will see.

If he does make the team I would expect it to be in a bottom-6 capacity. I really don't think he's going to out-muscle Sergei, Guillaume, or D'Agostini for the lone top-6 spot on the roster available. If he cannot crack the top-6, shouldn't he be in Hamilton playing big minutes instead?

I guess, but I have faith in him that he can out play D'agostini and (hold on to your hat) Sergei too! :unsure:

Throw Sergei on the 3rd line if we need to.

Max is well beyond both SK 74 and Dags. He is flying this fall and I am looking forward to him getting a shot at top 6 minutes. I love that so many spots are being contested. If you are not in shape and ready to fly, then you will not have a spot on this club. I can see Bob pulling a trade and eliminating some excess creating more room for the deserving youth. If the pundits are offering their expert knowledge and plotting us to finish 8th to 12th in the east, then I say we take that garbage and shove it down their throats. So much has changed from last year and lots is for the better.

74 can bring alot to the table when his head is in the game as he has shown a few years ago, Dags the jury is still out

The Gazette (Pat Hickey)

Max Pacioretty, one of the young forwards who is battling for a job with the Canadiens, continues to have a strong training camp.

Pacioretty scored the most impressive goal in yesterday's scrimmage, cutting in from the right side, deking goaltender Curtis Sanford and then lifting the puck over the sprawling goaltender.

That was the coup de grâce in Team B's 3-1 victory over Team C in the camp's final scrimmage.

All three teams finished with 1-1 records, but Team B was declared the champion on goal differential, scoring four times, while giving up only three goals.

"It's tough to get the first goal in camp, and it's good to get it out of the way, and

I hope to go on from here," Pacioretty said.

I think you may see a line of Pac on the left side of Pleks and Gionta. Which I would be quite happy with. All 3 have tremedous speed and Pacs would give the line some size.

I have been in favor of this line as well. We'll see it in action tonight and it's a big game for Pacioretty, he's clearly the dark horse in this race behind a more established players like Latendresse so he needs to take full advantage of all his opportunities and this is a golden one.
