Undrafted. I wonder why that was.

I'd say he was just a late bloomer. I know he was playin with younger kids and playing with two of the best kids in the world. Buuuut..... Imagine how well he could do with pros passing him the puck. I think he is the real deal. He is a character player who never lost focus and is loved by his teammates. Go moosegeads go. Habs got 2 out of the four. Not bad

Do I detect a fellow Haligonian? :)

Its surprising. I mean yes he's older and yes his numbers are padded after playing with 2 great linemates, but you would think that his stats + his size would have made him somebody's 7th round pick or something. Could definitely be a steal. Heck, even if all he ends up as is a 4th liner, its a great move.

I have Mooseheads season tickets every year and I of all the junior players I have seen play in 10 years none of them would be as perfect a fit for Montreal as Fournier. He is like Tomas Holmstrom with more skill and loves sticking up for his teammates. Look up the video "Fournier Creates the Moment" on youtube from the Presidents cup finals. He scores, gets an assist and then beats the crap out of a big guy that was rag-dolling Mackinnon behind the net. Awesome.

Welcome to the forum or welcome back if you've been here before under another handle.

I'd have to take you word on it, don't have the time to keep up on all of our prospects. I do check and catch the odd Bulldogs game, even there, not as much as i use to.

I've actually heard good things about Fournier, but have never seen him play personally.

definitely take a look at that video.

Thanks for the input.

Here it is for those who may not have seen it.

He's what 21 yrs. old... may play in Hamilton... and just maybe he should be old enough to make the jump to the Habs this year if a spot on the roster would allow for it.

I like the idea of a player not drafted proving he was passed over in error. Diamonds (hidden Gems) in the rough as they say. But, IMO, what happens often is we never get to find out.

I love seeing a team willing to take the risk and reap the rewards. I hope this is the case with Stefan.

Gorges was undrafted, he was basically a throw in when we dealt Rivet to San Jose, that deal has payed off in spades for us. We got Gorges in that deal and i believe we chose Patches with that draft pick. At the time fans were complaining that we got nothing in return. Sure looks good now, both players we acquired in that deal are now key pieces.

Stephan might surprise as well. He's a local boy as well, have met him on several occassions at the shop. He told me over a year ago that Tinordi was a good pick up by the habs, that he was a tough player to play against.

I don't know, is he really that high on the depth chart? Fortunately, it's looking Gionta could be ready to start the season (and if not won't miss much time). :)

Still... it would be nice to see how he could do until Gionta returns... he has talent size and shoots right. Playing with Bourque-Plekanec would be interesting to see IMO.
