    • Michaël Lambert
    • Mathieu Aubin
    • Matt D’Agostini
    • Eric Manlow
    • Duncan Milroy
    • Gregory Stewart
    • Cory Urquhart
    • Jimmy Bonneau
    • Francis Lemieux
    • Jon Gleed
    • Andrew Archer
    • Ben Maxwell
    • Sergei Kostitsyn
    • Mathieu Carle

    No big surprises here.

    Mikhail Grabosvky is still at camp despite dislocating his shoulder in last night’s 3-1 loss to the Bruins.
    The first thing I noticed about him at camp was his diminuitive size and he’s already injured.

    For now the Guillaume Latendresse story continues, but not for long.

  1. By the sounds of things Perezhogin might be on the bubble. Apparently if Kotstitsyn, Latendresse, Chipchura or Grabovski preform very well in Exibition than Perezhogin will be the first to go down to the minors to make room for them.

  2. Grabovski is now injured-separated shoulder, out 4-6 weeks, so I don’t think he will make the habs this season. Maybe Latendresse. if he plays well in exhibition games, can get the final roster spot.

  3. It is Zhog’s spot to lose and hopefully if he continues to play like he did on Tuesday then Carbo will have the strength to send him down. I didnt understand last preseason why he was a shoe in . Pleks and Higgins outplyes in last preseason and you could argue so did Gui. I was a little surprised Maxwell didnt get another game.

  4. Didn’t they also send Sanford home…or is he still in camp. Crazy donut-eating bastard…
