Some of the players at the development camp spoke to the media on Tuesday, with first-round pick Michael Hage explaining why he’s honoured to be part of the organization.

Now that the Habs have signed Juraj Slafkovsky to an 8-year extension, the attention turns to Kaiden Guhle. Guhle is asked to do a lot for the Canadiens, which will make negotiations a little more complicated. Here are some comparable contracts that could serve as the framework for a potential long-term deal. [Canadiens Contracts: Finding Comparables For Guhle’s Extension]

An important detail regarding the aforementioned Slafkovsky extension: the 20-year-old forward will have a modified no-trade clause in place from the 2029-30 season and onward. Slafkovsky will submit a 10-team ‘no trade’ list once the M-NTC kicks in. [Instant Analysis: Canadiens Bank On Growth In Slafkovsky Deal]

  • Steven Stamkos didn’t have much time to dwell on his disappointment. The seven-time NHL All-Star wanted to stay with the Tampa Bay Lightning, which drafted him No. 1 overall in 2008 and helped him develop into one of the league’s top centermen. But by late Sunday night, Stamkos knew his choices on the first day of free agency wouldn’t include his longtime team. [Nashville Predators]
  • There are lingering and significant questions without definitive answers. Yet the circumstantial evidence is piling up, and arrows are beginning to point to a full-scale rebuild, not a retool on the fly, for the Pittsburgh Penguins beginning within the next 12 months. For starters, it’s July 3. Where is the new contract for Sidney Crosby? [Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • After receiving his qualifying offer over the weekend, forward Bobby Brink agreed to a new two-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday worth $3 million in total, carrying an AAV of $1.5 million. [Philadelphia Flyers]

In the Habs Development Camp Roster Updated Heights and Weights, it is indicated that Owen Protz shoots “D/R”, i.e. “right”. In all images of him, he’s a left-handed shot.

Compared to what we saw getting drafted last week, other than a couple of guys, that’s a pretty small group of prospects size-wise.

Looks like we can’t edit our own comments with the new setup. That would be something to add back again.

What I meant about “size-wise” is the players’ heights & weights, not the number of players at camp. The draft had a number of massive players getting selected by teams other than us. I don’t ever recall a draft where pretty much everyone was that big. Over half the players selected were over 6’2” and a big portion of those were 6’5” or bigger. Wow!

Could the Habs sign Sid for 3 yrs for 24 Mil. None in the pipeline for 3 yrs. What an addition he would be
