Super excited that the Habs are taking the ice in just 10 minutes for the third and last inter squad scrimmage. The Habs are very, very deep this year and that bodes well for the team that is a bit… weak… physically. They no longer need to worry that they can’t play at top speed because of injury, there are at least 4 NHL ready players that won’t make the starting roster out of training camp.
They are, just for the record – Pateryn, De la Rose, Tinordi, Andrighetto. Each of these guys can play in the NHL tomorrow, but won’t unless the team gets some injuries. I don’t think Tinordi is making the team, and that is a huge disappointment
I feel the team will ice the following players to start the season:
Desharnais – Pacioretty – Parenteau
Plekanec – Bournival – Gallagher
Eller – Galchenyuk – Bourque
Malholtra – Wiese – Prust
Markov, Subban, Emelin, Gilbert, Weaver, Beaulieu.
Pressbox : Moen (until he can be traded) and Pateryn.
