And while it may be disappointing, it's not like he won't be welcomed with open arms. He'll play a big role there, lots will be expected of him. He'll need to meet or exceed these expectations to wipe the slate clean from last season, and earn a contract with the Canadiens. Let's hope he takes the bull by the horns and responds well. He says he models his game after Kevin Bieksa. Well, we can always use a one of those on our team.

Dalton Thrower sent down to Junior team, will be the #1 defenceman on the Vancouver Giants
Dalton Thrower has been sent down to the Vancouver Giants of the WHL after failing to win a job on the Hamilton Bulldogs at training camp. Not that he played badly, but he would have had to the best player on the ice to have a shot. We covered this before, he's had a difficult previous season in Saskatoon, and the lineup in Hamilton is already crowded with young defencemen who need icetime, so he's better off going back to the WHL.
