it's all good though Alzner said he is going to play better this year......Lol! interviewed by rds it is a good laugh! basically said he was not really trying last year but this year he is going to open it up!


An obvious change of attitude. Bergevin has it all figured out. ;)

Habs have unofficially announced cuts for today by assigning players to a Group C team... Josh Brook, Daniel Audette expected to be among the cuts. Chaput, Agostino, and the two new Czech D men among the remaining players, as is Kotkaniemi.

Sucks for Brook (who i thought was one of our 4 best) but it was pretty obvious he wasnt going to make the team this year.

CJ has actually announced a few players may "stick around or come back for a game later in camp" but the overall suggestion is that the Grp C players won't make the team out of camp.

And FWIW, Lindgren has outplayed Niemi thus far.

Totally agree.  I do wonder if they will consider exposing Niemi to waivers & sending him down.  Having to no longer worry about re-entry waivers its a calculated risk.   I guess the question is whether Lindgren is going to learn more backing up Price or playing #1 in Laval.

Claude Julien mentioned some cuts could be coming for #habs after tonight’s game in Toronto. Could be a last look for some players in this one.

yeah i think a fair number may happen.  After tonight we have 3 games left, right?  Thats usually when coaches start icing (pretty-close-to) full Nhl rosters.   I would imagine we'll only have 3-4 bubble players after tonight.
